Over the past several years, nearly 90 kidney patients who have developed a mysterious condition known as Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis have filed suit against General Electric. GE is the parent company of the medical manufacturing firm that makes Omniscan gadolinium contrast dye, which is sometimes used to enhance image clarity when patients undergo magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans. The latest claims allege that GE did not adequately test the dye before releasing it to the market. Although a venue has been selected for the trials, a firm date has not yet been set.
