Intravascular iodinated contrast has historically been considered a risk factor for acute kidney injury (AKI), particularly among individuals with underlying chronic kidney disease (1). Recent studies, however, have suggested that incidence of contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) may not be as frequent as previously thought (2,3).

The occurrence of acute kidney injury (AKI) resulting from the intravascular administration of contrast media (CM), commonly referred to as contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN), has become firmly entrenched.

Increasingly in the 21st century, nephrologists and other physicians are turning to social media (SoMe) and internet-based forums to teach the next generation, treat their patients better, and bolster their knowledge.

This year’s World Kidney Day falls on International Women’s Day, offering the nephrology community an excellent time to reflect on the theme, “Kidneys & Women’s Health: Include, Value, Empower.”

Studies have shown gender disparities in care for many chronic diseases, and ESRD is no exception.
