is an article review based on a research work on ‘Adverse reactions to
iodinated contrast media, prevalence, risk factors and outcome – the results of
a 3-year period’ by Panitan, et al., published in the Asian Pac J Allergy
Immunology; April 31 2013: 299 – 306. http://apjai.digitaljournals.org. The
review will comprise a brief summary of the article and a critical analysis of
the structure. The article’s general content and scope will also be assessed
for currency and relevance. The article’s authority on the issues discussed and
credibility in view of current knowledge will also be evaluated.
