Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis: An MRI is All It Takes
A patient fell seriously ill after having a magnetic resonance image (MRI) taken. She began to have kidney problems and was eventually confined to a wheelchair.
Why? Because she was tested with gadolinium contrast dye.
According to an article in The Courier Post on May 27, 2007, the 46-year-old mother of two began experiencing terrifying symptoms. A month after having an MRI medical procedure, the New Jersey resident developed her first signs of Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis. Weitz & Luxenberg believes that these kinds of tragedies are unacceptable.
What is Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis?
NSF, also sometimes referred to as nephrogenic fibrosing dermopathy (NFD), is a disease of the nephrons in the kidney, which normally filter the blood. It has a wide variety of painful symptoms: patients may develop large areas of hardened skin with fibrotic nodules and plaques. Skin tightens and limits a person’s range of motion, sometimes leaving them wheelchair-bound. In the most severe cases, those treated with gadolinium who develop NSF incur paralysis of their internal organs.
NSF is a horrifying and permanently debilitating impairment that no one should have to suffer, especially when the cause is easily preventable. Gadolinum MRI dye is one of many products that can be used to conducts this test. There is no reason to risk crippling a patient when there are easily accessible alternatives.
