Side effects of radiation dyes in system?

Side effects of radiation dyes in system?

Radioactive Dyes or: 'tracers' are special dyes usually given through an IV as part of a nuclear medicine study. Tracers contain a small amount of a radioactive isotope that decays naturally over time and is eliminated in the urine and stool.

Different dyes used: Ask your cardiologist or radiologist who is performing the procedure and ask what dye is going to be used. There are different classes of rcm and they are classified according to their tonicity. The isoosmolar reagents are the least likely to result in reactions. Let your physician know your concerns and they will walk you through the options. Read more

Ct angiography offered. Terrified of dieing from allergic reaction to the dye. 22 male.

You might want to discuss this with the radiologist in charge. If still concerned see a psychiatrist or clinical psychologist and address your fears. Good luck. Read more
