Results for contrast media

1. Are low osmolality contrast media less neprotoxic?

On the basis of their chemical and pharmacologic properties, contrast media may
be distributed into two large groups: high- and low-osmolar agents. Low- osmolar
agents may be further classified as either nonionic or ionic subgroups. The i

6. Notes on Radiographic Contrast Agents - RANZCR

The location of this K-edge for iodine has practical implications. Obviously the
maximum contrast in radiographic studies using iodine compounds would be
obtained by using a monochromatic beam of radiation of energy just above 33.2

9. Radiographic contrast media - Wiley Online Library

Conventional ionic contrast media, which are sodium and meglumine salts of tri-
iodinated benzoic acid, have been available since the 1950s [1]. They are very
hyperosmolar, with an osmolality of 5? times that of blood. The hyperosmolality

10. characteristics of contrast media types of iodinated contrast

Contrast media can cause heart rhythm disturbances. One mechanism is thought
to be due to effects on the conducting system that generates the pumping action
of the heart. Nonionic CM does not carry electrical charges osmolality. Osmolalit
