Iotrolan in head and body CT — European experience
- 18 Downloads
The safety, tolerance and efficacy of the non-ionic dimer iotrolan 280 in head and body computed tomography was compared with iohexol, iopamidol and iopromide in a double-blind, randomized, multicenter study. A total of 307 head and 261 body examinations were performed. No significant changes in liver or renal blood parameters were seen up to 24 h post-examination. No significant differences in tolerability, adverse events profile, and efficacy were seen.
