For computerized tomography (CT) of the intracranial subarachnoid spaces and for ventriculography by direct injection using standard radiologic techniques to visualize the cerebral ventricles. Also used in pediatric angiocardiography to visualize lesions or malformations of the heart and obstructions or anomalies of the major thoracic vessels. Also used in adult peripheral arteriography to visualize specific regions of the vascular system and blood flow in such areas to help in the diagnosis and evaluation of neoplasms (known or suspected) or vascular diseases (congenital or acquired) that may cause changes in normal vascular anatomy or physiology. Metrizamide is also indicated in adults for intravenous digital arteriography of head and neck.

Conray may also be used for enhancement of computed tomographic scans performed for detection and evaluation of lesions in the liver, pancreas, kidneys, abdominal aorta, mediastinum, abdominal cavity and retroperitoneal space.
DB09134IoversolOptiray 350 is indicated in adults for peripheral and coronary arteriography and left ventriculography. Optiray 350 is also indicated for contrast enhanced computed tomographic imaging of the head and body, intravenous excretory urography, intravenous digital subtraction angiography and venography. Optiray 350 is indicated in children for angiocardiography. Optiray 320 is indicated in adults for angiography throughout the cardiovascular system. The uses include cerebral, coronary, peripheral, visceral and renal arteriography, venography, aortography, and left ventriculography. Optiray 320 is also indicated for contrast enhanced computed tomographic imaging of the head and body, and intravenous excretory urography. Optiray 320 is indicated in children for angiocardiography, contrast enhanced computed tomographic imaging of the head and body, and intravenous excretory urography. Optiray 300 is indicated for cerebral angiography and peripheral arteriography. Optiray 300 is also indicated for contrast enhanced computed tomographic imaging of the head and body, venography, and intravenous excretory urography. Optiray 240 is indicated for cerebral angiography and venography. Optiray 240 is also indicated for contrast enhanced computed tomographic imaging of the head and body and intravenous excretory urography.
DB09135IoxilanWhen administered intra-arterially, Ioxilan is indicated for the following diagnostic tests: cerebral arteriography (300 mgI/mL), coronary arteriography and left ventriculography (350 mgI/mL), visceral angiography(350 mgI/mL), aortography(350 mgI/mL), and peripheral arteriography(350 mgI/mL). When administered intravenously, Ioxilan is indicated for excretory urography and contrast enhanced computed tomographic (CECT) imaging of the head and body (300 and 350 mgI/mL).
DB09156IopromideIopromide, as the product Iovist, is indicated for use as an X-ray contrast agent in the following procedures: Intra-arterial digital subtraction angiography (IA-DSA) (150 mg I/mL) Cerebral arteriography and peripheral arteriography (300 mg I/mL) Coronary arteriography and left ventriculography, visceral angiography and aortography (370 mg I/mL) Peripheral venography (240 mg I/mL) Excretory urography (300 mg I/mL) Contrast computed tomography (CT) imaging of head and body (300 mg I/mL and 370 mg I/mL)
DB09313Ioxaglic acidThis medicinal product is for diagnostic use only in adults and children as a low-osmolality medium [L1883], [A7924].
DB09333Iopodic acidIopodic acid is available as a cholecystographic agent. This denomination indicates the iopodic acid is a radiopaque substance that can be used to visualize the gallbladder and biliary channels in abdominal X-ray.[L1587, A32087] An abdominal X-ray uses a minimal amount of ionizing radiation to produce pictures of the inside of the abdominal cavity. It is commonly used to evaluate the stomach, liver, intestines, and spleen.[L1589] Iopodic acid has also been indicated for the treatment of hyperthyroidism such as Graves disease.[A32085, A32086] Hyperthyroidism refers to any condition where there is too much thyroid hormone produced in the body (overactive thyroid). When the overactivity involves the entire thyroid gland, it is known as Grave's disease.[L1590]
DB09340Tyropanoic acidFor use in cholecystography (X-ray diagnosis/imaging of gallstones).
DB09346Metrizoic acidFor use as a contrast medium [L1597].
DB09347Acetrizoic acidAcetrizoic acid indication was to be used as a contrast agent for X-ray. Some information indicates its nephrotropic property as one of the characteristics for the utilization of acetrizoic acid.[A32135] The X-ray imaging depends on the difference in tissue density which is provided by an X-ray attenuation between the area of interest and the surrounding tissue. The use of contrast agents will provoke a contrast enhancement or opacification and it will improve the differentiation of pathological processes from normal tissue.[T125]

DB13444Ioxitalamic acidIoxitalamate in both of its available forms is indicated for exploration of the digestive tract by tomodensitometry or by regular gastroduodenal radiography. Its use is restrained to the cases in which the administration of barium sulfate is not recommended or contraindicated.[F55] The intravascular administration of ioxitalamate is contraindicated as it may present significant side effects.[F54]
