Maximum allowable contrast dose (MACD) calculated as body weight × 5/serum creatinine has been a standard contrast dye volume (CV) used to decrease contrast-induced acute kidney injury. Recent advances in intravascular ultrasound-guided percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) can dramatically minimize CV. The safe threshold when using an extremely low-dose… CONTINUE READING
