What is diatrizoate used for?

Diatrizoate meglumine injection is used to help diagnose or find problems in the urinary bladder. It is a radiopaque contrast agent. Contrast agents are used to create a clear picture of the different parts of the body during certain medical procedures, such as retrograde cystourethrography.

What causes diatrizoate?

hives and redness, low blood oxygen, shortness of breath, fast heart rate, and. severe allergic reaction (anaphylaxis)

Does diatrizoate contain iodine?

Each mL contains 660 mg diatrizoate meglumine and 100 mg diatrizoate sodium; pH has been adjusted to 6.0 to 7.6 with sodium hydroxide. Each mL contains approximately 4.8 mg (0.21 mEq) sodium and 367 mg organically bound iodine.

What is diatrizoate sodium?

Diatrizoate Sodium is an iodinated radiopaque X-ray contrast medium. Diatrizoate sodium blocks X-rays, thereby allowing body structures containing iodine to be delineated in contrast to those structures that do not contain iodine and allowing visualization of these areas.

Is Gastrografin and Urografin same?

Urografin has essentially the same composition as that of gastrografin. The main difference between the two agents is that urografin has a lower osmolarity.

What is the difference between Omnipaque and Gastrografin?

The result was that Omnipaque retained its radiographic density in the small bowel better than Gastrografin. Omnipaque was thus a better alternative than Gastrografin in follow-through examinations of intestinal obstruction.

Is Gastrografin safer than barium?

Aspiration of Gastrografin is potentially dangerous and could be fatal. We believe that barium sulfate, which provides better radiographic detail and is not so hazardous when aspirated, should be the contrast medium of choice.

Is iohexol better than diatrizoate sodium for CT?

Oral contrast media for body CT: Comparison of diatrizoate sodium and iohexol for patient acceptance and bowel opacification Patents preferred dilute iohexol over dilute diatrizoate sodium for oral contrast for abdominal-pelvic CT. There was no significant difference in bowel opacification or adverse effect profile.

What is diatrizoate sodium used for?

As diatrizoate meglumine and as Diatrizoate sodium, it is used for gastrointestinal studies, angiography, and urography.

Is diatrizoate an alternative to barium for imaging the GI tract?

The high-osmolar WSC agent diatrizoate is a commonly used alternative to barium for imaging of the GI tract.

Does diatrizoate interact with zonisamide or zaleplon?

Diatrizoate may decrease the excretion rate of Zaleplon which could result in a higher serum level. Diatrizoate may decrease the excretion rate of Zanamivir which could result in a higher serum level. Zonisamide may increase the excretion rate of Diatrizoate which could result in a lower serum level and potentially a reduction in efficacy.
