Announcement of altered dispensing status for gadolinium-containing contrast agents (ATC code: V08CA)

Updated 22 February 2021

The Danish Medicines Agency hereby informs you that the dispensing status for all gadolinium-containing contrast agents, regardless of strength, pack size and indication is changed to ‘BEGR’ (only to be dispensed to hospitals) as of 5 October 2020.

Gadolinium-containing contrast agents are authorised for highly specialised examinations of the body. It is assessed that these examinations are only carried out in hospitals in Denmark, and therefore the dispensing status is changed to ‘hospitals only’.
