Hi. Is is safe to undergo MRI with contrast injection while breastfeeding?

Where am I?

Hi ..

It's fine to get MRI done with contrast.... avoid breast feeding after procedure for 4 hours ....express and keep it before procedure to feed baby during that time... take care.

Hello 

around 1% of the contrast given may get into the breastmilk, so our lactation expert will guide further details regarding this.
