I did just read on the mayo clinic website about a newer gadolinium-based contrast agent (called gadolinium group 2) that seems to be safer for kidney patients. It came from an article about Nephrogenic systemic fibrosis.

@csage1010 My oncologist had talked to me about this agent. But last time I needed a scan that is best done with a contrast, we decided in my best interest that we would go "no contrast". I was already below 30% eGFR and we didn't want to risk anything. The technicians were pretty awesome people, had everything set up, and understood my insistence to see the orders!
