Pharmaceutical Product Quality
Because of the high doses employed - which can exceed 100 g of substance per patient and examination – very high demands are made on CM in terms of chemical purity. The molecular structure of the CM substance is confirmed by NMR (nuclear magnetic resonance),, IR (infra red), MS (mass spectrometry) and UV (ultraviolet) spectra (fig. 13a-e).
