Does Pharmacy verify contrast orders?

Over the past few years, my institution has made progress in terms of treating contrast agents like medications. Most are ordered in Epic based on an Algorithm and some are now scanned before administration.

We are considering whether RPh verification is required for these agents (or perhaps some and not others?). Please share your thoughts and experiences!

Thank you.
