Detailed description

The i.v. injection of 30–60 ml iopromide 300/370 as a bolus (flow rate: 8–12 ml/sec. into the cubital vein; 10–20 ml/sec. into the vena cava) is only recommended for contrast demonstrations of great vessels of the trunk. The amount of contrast medium remaining in the veins can be reduced and diagnostically used by flushing with isotonic sodium chloride solution as a bolus immediately afterwards.

Active ingredient

The contrast-giving substance in the iopromide formulations is iopromide, a non-ionic water-soluble derivative of triiodinated isophthalic acid in which the firmly bound iodine absorbs the X-rays. Injection of iopromide opacifies those vessels or body cavities in the path of flow of the contrast agent, permitting radio-graphic visualization of the internal structures until significant dilution occurs.
