Abstract

Contrast-induced acute kidney injury (CI-AKI) is an important complication of intravascular administration of contrast media required in many diagnostic and therapeutic procedures across a variety of medical and surgical disciplines. It is classified as an etiology of acute kidney injury (AKI) but specifically only refers to AKI as a result of intravascular contrast use.
