The Contraindications and Criteria of Diagnostic Radiology - "Is it Still a Concern in this Modern Age?"

R. Adityan | R. Sujitha [2]


Abstract: The diagnostic radiography and imaging technology has various modalities with its own crucial nature. It also has its potential disadvantages in the name of "Contraindications" too which states that under certain conditions the diagnostic radiographic technique is impossible to perform. For the diagnostic imaging during pregnancy, USG can be done with reduced exposure time, CT and MRI can be done by justifying the benefit risk ratio and scan time. Patients with previous allergic reaction history to contrast media can be examined by changing the contrast media or with the help of premedication. The updated ESUR guidelines recommend the use of iodinated contrast media in pregnant patients only under limited and exceptional conditions. The ACR concludes that gadolinium based MRI examination for pregnant patients should be considered only when diagnostic outcome is justified. For lactating women, breast feeding is not a mandatory to stop unless the patient is in high risk category.In recent days all the timely followed procedures were potentially replaced by various clinical studies, recommendations, guidelines, and advancements in technologies leading to the betterment of human wellbeing at any cause. The future of medical imaging relies on eliminating all these contraindications without the cost of patient health and image quality.
