A 27-year-old male asked:
Has nephrogenic systemic fibrosis ever occurred in someone with normal kidney function following mri contrast? i know unlikely but is it still a risk?

Unlikely: Normal functioning kidneys should be able to excrete the dye used for MRI and so unlikely to cause nsf. Saying that someone can have impaired kidney functions with normal looking creatinine.
