Users searching for Contrast, IVP, IV Contrast etc. will not find it in the med allergen or non-med allergen dictionaries.

The Med Allergen dictionary contains the entry 'Iodine' intended to represent IVP Dye allergy.

You can add IVP Dye to your Allergen dictionary in TWAdmin. Many clients add IVP Dye and Shellfish to the Allergen dictionary.

Best practice recommendation is to add IVP Dye to the (non-med) 'Allergen' dictionary and Train users not to search under Medication Allergy, because this is really not a Medication and is a Non-Medication Allergy.
