If the departmental outpatient questionnaire raises the possibility of occult renal impairment, i.e. positive answers to renal problems, diabetes, drugs, myeloma or connective tissue diseases, then a POC Creatinine test will be performed at the time of the contrast enhanced CT study.
In-patients and ER patients continue to require an appropriate lab Creatinine value (1.5) before having iodinated contrast.
How will my information be used?
When you express interest in a specific study, the information from your profile will be sent to the doctor conducting that study. If you're eligible to participate, you may be contacted by a nurse or study coordinator.
If you select a health category rather than a specific study, doctors who have active studies in that area may contact you to ask if you would like to participate.
In both cases, you will be contacted by the preferred method (email or phone) that you specified in your profile.
