Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. These contrasts usually in short-term have been reported to cause some renal damage but that is very rare. Long term effect with short term use is very unlikely as these radioactive isotopes have a very short reply and detoxify quite soon.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
