[dropcap]M[/dropcap]RIs have been around for a couple of decades as a valuable medical tool. Sometimes, contrast "dye" is used to provide better images. Doctors once thought the gadolinium heavy metal chemical in the dye was immediately expelled from the body and didn't do any harm. But a few years back, the FDA issued a warning. [quote]The FDA said that in people with kidney problems, the gadolinium can remain in their bodies and cause a painful and deadly disorder. [/quote]
Now, patients who had no kidney problems are complaining about the same kind of injuries after multiple MRIs. One of those patients is the wife of famed actor and martial arts expert Chuck Norris. We'll visit with the Norris' at their Texas ranch and hear their story on Sunday's Full Measure. The makers of the "dye" and the FDA say they're studying the issue but that they don't think there's any reason for concern.[hr]
Also, Scott Thuman takes us inside a high-tech military research and development agency, "DARPA," to see their accomplishments and boondoggles over the years.
