The article presents a reprint of "Five things to know about contrast-induced nephropathy," by Mark. O. Baerlocher, Murray Asch and Andy Myers, which appeared on the web site www.cmaj.ca. It offers information on contrast-induced nephropathy, which is a common cause of hospital-acquired renal failure. It lists risk factors for nephropathy, discusses the importance of assessing renal function and using renal protective measures in patients, and mentions alternate imaging tests that may be used.
