Magn Reson Med. Although not directly linked to adverse health effects in patients with normal kidney function, the possible risk of using intravenous linear chelated media, in which the gadolinium is shown to have a lower binding affinity, has led to a change in the market authorisation for all linear chelated gadolinium-based media.
