Gadolinium and Skin Disease
At Rheingold, Valet, Rheingold, McCartney & Giuffra LLP, we handle a wide range of drug liability claims, including those involving the contrast agent (sometimes known as an "MRI dye") Gadolinium.
You may have been poisoned by Gadolinium if you have recently received an MRI and are experiencing any of the following NSF symptoms:
- Hardening and tightening of the skin
- Swelling and inflammation of the skin
- Skin lesions
- Red or dark patches on the skin
