Germans Pinpoint How Gadolinium Passes Through the Brain

Researchers from Heidelberg University Hospital and Essen University Hospital have found a way to monitor precisely how gadolinium-based contrast agents (GBCAs) enter the brain via the glymphatic pathway. This aspect has been overlooked and misinterpreted in the past and this discovery may introduce new important clinical implications. The German researchers published their study online with Investigative Radiology.
