"While there is clear evidence that all types of [gadolinium contrast agents], both linear and macrocyclic, may result in trace amounts of gadolinium in the brain, there exists no clinical evidence that this leads to an increase in risk or harm to patients," a press release from GE Healthcare defended the company's MRI contrast agent Omniscan; and continued stating that "Omniscan has a specific cardiac indication in several European Member States; removing it would limit clinical choice."
