SAN FRANCISCO – A man alleges he has been injured by multiple injections of linear gadolinium-based contrast agents used for MRIs.

Philip John Stuto and Kathleen Ingrid Stuto filed a complaint on Jan. 14 in the San Francisco County Superior Court against GE Healthcare Inc., General Electric Co., McKesson Corp. and Does 1-20 alleging negligence.

According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that Philip John Stuto has sustained serious injuries, including debilitating symptoms of Gadolinium Deposition Disease (GDD) and Nephrogenic System Fibrosis (NSF), as a result of being injected with defendants' Omniscan and Gadodiamide for MRI procedures.

The plaintiffs hold GE Healthcare Inc., General Electric Co., McKesson Corp. and Does 1-20 responsible because the defendants' products allegedly were defective due to inadequate design and the defendants allegedly failed to provide adequate warning.

The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek judgment against defendants; award of actual, general, special and compensatory damages; interest; punitive and exemplary damages; and further relief as the court deems just. They are represented by Michael P. Verna of Bowles & Verna LLP in Walnut Creek.
