Answer

Patients with diabetes who must undergo such studies should be well hydrated before, during, and after the study, and their renal function should be carefully monitored. [128] A better solution is to seek equivalent clinical information by using an alternative modality that does not require the use of contrast material (eg, ultrasonography, noncontrast computed tomography [CT], or magnetic resonance imaging [MRI]).
