Do You Need a New Approach to Contrast Media Selection?

Posted by The Evidence Blog on March 14, 2012

Physicians often have preferences with regard to the contrast media they prefer. However, without an evidence-based comparison of the safety, utility, and diagnostic performance of competing products, the contrast agent used may not be the best product from a clinical performance perspective. Using an evidence-based approach can balance the marketing hype and physician preference that sometimes drives the selection of contrast media.

We’d like to commend our colleagues, Pamela Johnson, RN, MHA, Administrator, Imaging & Cardiology Resource Management, from Dignity Health, and Nancy Cahill, PharmD, from Cardinal Health Pharmacy Solutions, for leading the development of an evidence-based methodology for contrast media selection in the Dignity Health system. They will be sharing this process and the clinical and operational outcomes achieved at a complimentary webinar on Tuesday, March 27, 2012, from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM EDT.

Sign up and learn more about this systematic approach, which includes a review of the clinical evidence and an evaluation of the outcomes associated with the various contrast agents.

The webinar will be accredited for one (1) Category A ARRT CE Credit through the AHRA and one (1) ANCC CE Unit for Nurses and ACPE Pharmacy Credits. This webinar is not sponsored by or affiliated with Hayes, Inc.
