Hi nffcnner,

I do think that it's a negative thing... but in the way that the product is potentially harmful and has become more widely used in recent years... there's been a lot coming out about how contrast agents can really help imaging, but the side effects and potential hazards may not be worth the risks. The fact that they're getting a black-box warning is quite a big deal for anyone using this product.

I wasn't really giving an opinion either way, but the fact that contrast agents have had two warnings recently should make people think twice about their use.

Thanks,
Brian

When you say "Contrast agents take another hit," you sound like it's a negative thing? Why shouldn't people be warned about a potentially dangerous product?
