OBJECTIVE: To perform a survey-based assessment of current contrast reaction training in US diagnostic radiology residency programs.
METHODS: An electronic survey was distributed to radiology residency program directors from 9/2015-11/2015.
RESULTS: 25.7% of programs responded. 95.7% of those who responded provide contrast reaction management training. 89.4% provide didactic lectures (occurring yearly in 71.4%). 37.8% provide hands-on simulation training (occurring yearly in 82.3%; attended by both faculty and trainees in 52.9%).
CONCLUSION: Wide variability in contrast reaction education in US diagnostic radiology residency programs reveals an opportunity to develop and implement a national curriculum.
