I (we) understand that there may be a possibility I will need an injection and/or oral dose of contrast to complete my diagnostic exam. I (we) also understand there is a possibility that I may have an allergic reaction to the contrast and/or an extravasation of contrast into the surrounding tissues of where my intravenous catheter is placed. Both can be minor to severe. Reactions may include, but are not limited to: nausea, vomiting, warm sensation, altered taste, itching, hives, rash, headache, pallor, nasal stuffiness, dizziness, chills, swelling around the face and eyes, anxiety, tachycardia, hypertension, hypotension, shortness of breath, wheezing, laryngospasm, bronchospasm, anaphylaxis, convulsions, cardiopulmonary arrest and death. Extravasations (leakage into tissue) may be minor with small amounts of contrast, but can be severe if tissues react to the contrast. Large volume extravasations may possibly lead to surgical intervention. I (we) have read and understand the above information and give consent for the administration of intravenous contrast and/or oral contrast as indicated. Patient Signature:
