In this work, we describe the design, implementation, and utilization of an online and smartphone gadolinium calculator used to calculate gadolinium-based contrast agent (GBCA) dose. By providing a readily available, reliable, and rapid means of calculating the volume of a GBCA, we aim to ensure accurate dosing so as to avoid accidental over- or under-dosing. Utilization tracking demonstrated progressively increasing use of the online gadolinium calculator with a total of 22,074 page visits from 68 countries, logged during a 9-month tracking period.
