Great question. Studies are not great but the general consensus is that gad should be avoided in ckd 4 and 5 ( gfr<30 cc/min). Also, gad dose makes a difference too (try to use less than 0.4 mmol per kg if the MRI is absolutely needed). This article sums up all the studies done: http://m.cjasn.asnjournals.org/content/4/2/461.full#F3
