In order to assess the incidence of NSF at our large military hospital in China, we undertook a systematic search for cases of NSF and determined the number of patients receiving GBCA during the past 3.7 years for which computerized patient records are available. In spite of 28,680 injection of Gd:DTPA and 635 injection of gadobenate dimeglumine including 151 patients with GFR< 30ml/min or hemodialysis, there were no cases of NSF.
