Active ingredient description

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.
