Slide 33 - Contrast
Slide 34 - Contrast Types of iodinated contrast Ionic Nonionic - standard of care No change in death rate from reaction but number of reactions is decreased by factor of 4. If an enhanced study is needed, patient needs to be NPO at least 4 hours and have no contraindication to contrast, ie allergy or renal insufficiency.
Slide 35 - Contrast What are the risks of iodinated contrast? Contrast reaction 1 in 10,000 have true anaphylactic reaction 1 in 100,000 to 1 in 1,000,000 will die Medical Issues Acute renal failure Lactic acidosis in diabetics If on Glucophage, patient must stop Glucophage for 48 hours after exam to prevent serious lactic acidosis Cardiac Extravasation
Slide 36 - Contrast Who is at risk for an anaphylactic reaction? Patients with a prior history of contrast reaction Patients with a history asthma react at a rate of 1 in 2,000 Patients with multiple environmental allergies, ie foods, hay fever, medications Amin MM, et al. Ionic and nonionic contrast media: Current status and controversies. Appl Radiol 1993; 22: 41-54.
Slide 37 - Contrast Pretreatment for anaphylaxis 50 mg Oral Prednisone 13, 7 and 1 hour prior to exam 50 mg oral Benedryl 1 hour prior to exam In emergency, 200 mg iv hydrocortisone 2-4 hours prior to exam
Slide 38 - Contrast What are the risk factors for contrast induced acute renal failure? Pre-existing renal insufficiency Contrast volume Dehydration Advanced age Drugs Multiple myeloma Cardiac failure
Slide 39 - Contrast Considerations in patients with renal insufficiency Is the exam necessary? Is there an alternative exam that can answer the question? Decrease contrast dose
Slide 40 - Contrast Pretreatment for renal insufficiency Hydration Mucomyst 600 mg po BID the day before and day of study Prevention of radiographic-contrast-agent-induced reductions in renal function by acetylcysteine. Tepel M, et al. N Engl J Med 2000 Jul 20;343(3):180-4
Slide 41 - Contrast Contrast induced renal failure Elevated creatinine 24-48 hours after contrast which resolves over 7-21 days. Can require dialysis Mehran, R. et al. Radiocontrast induced renal failure:Allocations and outcomes. Reviews in Cardiovascular Medicine Vol. 2 Supp. 1 2001
Slide 42 - CT Basics Neuroradiology The BASICS of CT CT History Protocol Terminology Contrast Radiation Safety Cases
Slide 43 - Radiation Safety Diagnostic CT Scans: Assessment of Patient, Physician, and Radiologist Awareness of Radiation Dose and Possible Risks Lee, C. et al. Radiology 2004;231:393
Slide 44 - Radiation Safety Deterministic Effects Have a threshold below which no effect will be seen. Stochastic Effects Have no threshold and the effects are based on the dose x quality factor.
Slide 45 - Radiation Safety Terminology Gy = Gray is the absorbed dose (SI unit) The equivalent of 1 joule/kg of tissue Rad = radiation absorbed dose Sv = Sievert is the dose equivalent (SI unit) Absorbed dose multiplied by a quality factor Rem = radiation equivalent man
Slide 46 - Radiation Safety Relative values of CT exam exposure Background radiation is 3 mSv/year Water, food, air, solar In Denver (altitude 5280 ft.) 10 mSv/year CXR = 0.1 mSv CT head = 2 mSv CT Chest = 8 mSv CT Abdomen and Pelvis = 20 mSv -The equivalent of 200 CXR
Slide 47 - Radiation Safety Effects of X rays. Absorption of photons by biological material leads to breakage of chemical bonds. The principal biological effect results from damage to DNA caused by either the direct or indirect action of radiation.
Slide 48 - Radiation Safety Tissue/Organ radiosensitivity Fetal cells Lymphoid and hematopoietic tissues; intestinal epithelium Epidermal, esophageal, oropharyngeal epithelia Interstitial connective tissue, fine vasculature Renal, hepatic, and pancreatic tissue Muscle and neuronal tissue
Slide 49 - Radiation Safety Estimated Risks of Radiation-Induced Fatal Cancer from Pediatric CT David J. Brenner, et al. AJR 2001; 176:289-296 Additional 170 cancer deaths for each year of head CT in the US. 140,000 total cancer deaths, therefore ~ 0.12% increase 1 in 1500 will die from radiologically induced cancer
Slide 50 - Radiation Safety 3094 men received radiation for hemangioma Those receiving >100 mGy Decreased high school attendance Lower cognitive test scores Per Hall, et al. Effect of low doses of ionising radiation in infancy on cognitive function in adulthood: Swedish population based cohort studyBMJ, Jan 2004; 328: 19 - 0.
Slide 51 - Radiation Safety Hiroshima and Nagasaki There has been no detectable increase in genetic defects related to radiation in a large sample (80,000) of survivor offspring, including: congenital abnormalities, mortality (including childhood cancers), chromosome aberrations, or mutations in biochemically identifiable genes. William J Schull, Effects of Atomic Radiation: A Half-Century of Studies from Hiroshima and Nagasaki, 1995.
Slide 52 - Radiation Safety Hiroshima and Nagasaki However, exposed individuals who survived the acute effects were later found to suffer increased incidence of cancer of essentially all organs. William J Schull, Effects of Atomic Radiation: A Half-Century of Studies from Hiroshima and Nagasaki, 1995.
Slide 53 - Radiation Safety Hiroshima and Nagasaki Most victims with high doses died Victims with low doses despite their large numbers are still statistically insignificant.
Slide 54 - Radiation Safety Comparison of Image Quality Between Conventional and Low-Dose Nonenhanced Head CT Mark E. Mullinsa, et al. AJNR April 2004. Reduction of mAs from 170 to 90
Slide 55 - Radiation Safety What does all this mean? 1 CXR approximates the same risk as: 1 year watching TV (CRT) 1 coast to coast airplane flight 3 puffs on a cigarette 2 days living in Denver 1 Head CT is approximately 20 CXR Health Physics Society on the web--http://hps.org
Slide 56 - Radiation Safety The pregnant patient Can another exam answer the question? What is the gestational age? Counsel the patient 3% of all deliveries have some type of spontaneous abnormality The mother’s health is the primary concern.
Slide 57 - Radiation Safety "No single diagnostic procedure results in a radiation dose that threatens the well-being of the developing embryo and fetus." -- American College of Radiology "Women should be counseled that x-ray exposure from a single diagnostic procedure does not result in harmful fetal effects. Specifically, exposure to less than 5 rad has not been associated with an increase in fetal anomalies or pregnancy loss." -- American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists
Slide 58 - Conclusion Neuroradiologists are consultants Garbage in ------- Garbage out CT Terminology Attenuation (density) in Hounsfield units Digital interpretation is standard of care CT has risks Contrast Radiation exposure
