Patients with moderate to severe renal impairment scheduled for a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan and injection with a contrast agent, Primovist/Eovist, will be asked to participate.

The administration of contrast agents that contain gadolinium such as Primovist/Eovist might increase a potential risk to develop a rare condition called nephrogenic systemic fibrosis (NSF) in patients with renal impairment. This study is to assess the potential risk to develop NSF in patients with renal impairment after the administration of Primovist/Eovist.

Patients who are enrolled in this study will receive a Primovist/Eovist enhanced MRI scan which was prescribed by the referring doctor. After the MRI scan the patient will be included in a two year follow-up period to assess if signs or symptoms suggestive of NSF have appeared.

Official Title: Prospective Non-randomized (Pharmacoepidemiologic) Cohort Study (Open-label, Multicenter) to Assess the Magnitude of Potential Risk With the Administration of Primovist/Eovist in Patients With Moderate to Severe Renal Impairment for the Development of Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis (NSF) Based on Diagnostically Specific Clinical and Histopathologic Information.

Further study details as provided by Bayer:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of patients with moderate to severe renal impairment, who develop NSF, based on diagnostically specific clinical and histopathological information [ Time Frame: Within 2 years after administration of Primovist/Eovist ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Confidence of the investigator to make a diagnosis based on the Primovist/Eovist® enhanced MRI and to qualitatively assess the image quality [ Time Frame: Immediately after Primovist/Eovist-enhanced MRI ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Adverse events [ Time Frame: Immediately after Primovist/Eovist-enhanced MRI ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
