Japanese researchers have created a scoring rule to predict adverse reactions to contrast agents used in computed tomography. The study is published online in BMC Medical Informatics and Decision Making.  This was a retrospective cohort study of all adult patients undergoing contrast enhanced CT scan for 7 years. The subjects were randomly divided...Read more
