He established the existence of two new elements, samarium and gadolinium, since investigated more especially by Cleve, to whom most of our knowledge on this subject is due.
Meyer thinks that the susceptibilities of the metals praseodymium, neodymium, ytterbium, samarium, gadolinium, and erbium, when obtained in a pure form, will be found to equal or even exceed those of the well-known ferromagnetic metals.
Urbain (Comptes rendus, 1905, 140, p. 583) separates the metal by crystallizing the double nitrate of nickel and gadolinium.

Hypersensitivity reactions, as have been reported for other contrast media containing gadolinium, have also been observed after administration of Gadovist.
Epidural adhesions can usually be identified on an enhanced MRI scan using intravenous gadolinium.
gadolinium enhancement is the diagnostic procedure of choice.
GADOLINIUM (symbol Gd., atomic weight 157.3), one of the rare earth metals (see Erbium).
The contrast material used in MRI contains a material called gadolinium, that is much less likely to cause severe anaphylactic (allergic) reactions than the iodinated material used for CT scans.
