Webucation 13/8/13

Web musings come from abundant surgical sources this time. Enjoy the readings and always support the original content providers.

What we do in our practice is that we look into all the factors (some latent) when deciding who needs a scan with contrast:
  1. Age
  2. GFR - more so than creatinine
  3. Pathology in question - can it be observed rather than immediate diagnosis now?
  4. Renal disease?
  5. Non contrast scan - you will be surprised at its utility
Feel free to comment or ask your friendly radiologists to if they have an opinion.
