The element Gadolinium (Gd) is commonly used as a contrast dye during MRI's while looking for CSF Leaks.

Gadolinium-Based Contrast Agents (GBCA) are intravenous drugs used in diagnostic imaging procedures to enhance the quality of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or magnetic resonance angiography (MRA).

The FDA has issued safety alerts about this usage.

Gadolinium had been linked with Brain Abnormalities on MRI.

Hubby asked Dr Gray about this and she replied that they no longer use Gadolinium.

Gadolinium is in the 'Heavy Metal' class and accumulates in the body. Such metal accumulations can lead to chronic fatigue, issues with Thyroid such as being cold all of the time, and memory impairments. Chelation Therapy is the usual method of removing accumulation of Gd. It must be done by someone knowledgeable, the wrong treatment will make you worse.
