Gadolinium Lawsuit | Lawsuits for MRI Contrast Issues
Lawyers Helping Families Nationwide Harmed by Gadolinium Contrast Agents from MRI
Research shows that contrast agents used to enhance magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can cause a serious and chronic illness known as Gadolinium Deposition Disorder (GDD). Gadolinium is a heavy metal used in contrast dyes to aid the viewing of internal organs during MRI. Aware of gadolinium's toxicity to humans, drug companies promised that patients with normal kidney function would routinely excrete gadolinium and experience no MRI contrast agent side effects. In fact, gadolinium from MRI contrast agents can be retained in toxic deposits throughout the body, potentially causing the patient to develop Gadolinium Deposition Disorder. The disease has no cure and is characterized by chronic pain in the skin and bones, kidney damage, and cognitive loss; extreme cases involve a hardening of the skin that can result in death.
Nations around the world have taken aggressive steps to protect their citizens, banning the production of certain harmful gadolinium contrast dyes. Several FDA Gadolinium warnings have been issued, yet MRI dye agents containing the toxic substance are still in wide use in the United States. Persons who have undergone multiple MRIs with high gadolinium levels are at risk for developing gadolinium deposition disorder at any time. Evidence suggests industry executives were aware of the danger of gadolinium deposition disorder long before the FDA alerted the public. An estimated 30 million Americans undergo MRI each year.
A high profile gadolinium deposition disease lawsuit made national news in 2017 -- that of Gena Norris, wife to the celebrity actor Chuck Norris.
