Around 10% of all acute renal failure (ARF) in hospitalised patients in 1983 was due to an intravascular contrast media (UCM) administration (1). There are various predisposition factors such as dose and age, multiple utilization of UCM, dehydration, diabetes, multiple myeloma, hypertension, atherosclerosis, prior kidney or liver diseases, the co-administration of nephrotoxic drugs and kidney transplantation. However, these factors have relative risk that can be identified.
