Description

Report 1: Gadolinium-Based Contrast Agents (GBCAs) Use in Pregnancy
Request ID: cder_mpl1r_wp051

This report characterizes the use of GBCAs in pregnancy in the Sentinel Distributed Database (SDD). Data from January 1, 2006 to September 30, 2015 from 16 Data Partners contributing to the SDD were included in this report. This request was distributed to Data Partners on June 13, 2017.
These results were presented at the Division of Medical Imaging Products (DMIP) Advisory Committee meeting to discuss the risk of brain deposits with repeated use of GBCAs for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and to characterize the population using GBCAs. View more information here.
