Update information

Update information

September 2023: We amended recommendations on offering iodine-based contrast media to adults to clarify that, for non-emergency imaging, an estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) measurement is only needed if the person is at increased risk of kidney injury. See the surveillance report for more information.

December 2019: We have reviewed the evidence and made new recommendations on preventing acute kidney injury in adults having iodine-based contrast media. These recommendations are marked [2019].

Recommendations marked [2013] last had an evidence review in 2013. In some cases minor changes have been made to the wording to bring the language and style up to date, without changing the meaning.

Minor changes since publication

October 2021: We added a link to NICE's guideline on shared decision making, in recommendations 1.1.7, 1.1.9, 1.5.7, 1.5.10 and 1.6.1.

September 2021: In recommendation 1.3.1 we added a cross-reference to an algorithm endorsed by NHS England for early identification of acute kidney injury.
