I have a question regarding the color of the gadolinium injection that is given for contrast with MRI?s. What is the color of the injection material? The reason I ask is that I went for an MRI today and they injected this and I wasn?t able to see it b/c my head was still wrapped in the machine while they were injecting and I came home and found a purple stain on my t-shirt that was in an area that is close in proximity to my arm. I don?t remember spilling anything on my shirt, so I was wondering if that could potentially be the contrast material.

I have had a couple of MRI's and yes, it does seem to have a dark color. I am not sure if it is purple or not, I didn't get any spilled on me. Hope it washes out though!

thanks! I'll let you know if it does----I guess I should just be glad it's not radioactive or something like that:)
