Don’t Practice “Renalism” – A Discussion About Contrast Associated Acute Kidney Injury - #149



Drs. Jeremy Levin, Michal Radomski and Carrie Valdez discuss with Dr. Brad Dennis and Dr. Steven Weisbord contrast associated acute kidney injury – from the renal medulla to “renalism,” a discussion of clinical consequences, and much in between.  Should I adjust imaging order based on existing AKI?  Should risk of AKI alter imaging acquisition decision making in the trauma bay?  Are there strategies to mitigate the impact of contrast?  Listen to find out!
