Comparison of the safety of seven iodinated contrast media.

We aimed to determine the characteristic adverse events (AEs) of iodinated contrast media (IOCM) and to compare the safety profiles of different IOCM...

Adverse reactions to iodinated contrast media.
The use of iodinated contrast agents for angiography dates back to the 1920s. With over 75 million contrast-requiring procedures performed annually worldwide, it is important to understand the risk factors, pathogenesis, diagnosis, prevention, and tr

Immediate reactions to iodinated contrast media.
Immediate hypersensitivity reactions (IHRs) to iodinated contrast media (ICMs) remain a common clinical concern. Positive skin test and basophil activation test results suggest a specific IgE-mediated mechanism in some cases. Skin test and controlled

Renal Safety of Iodinated Contrast Media Depending on Their Osmolarity - Current Outlooks.
Iodinated contrast media (ICM) are commonly administered pharmaceutical agents. Most often they are used intravenously and intraarterially. Although iodinated contrast agents are relatively safe and widely used, adverse events occur and questions rem

Economic evaluation of intravenous iodinated contrast media in Italy.
Contrast-induced acute kidney injury (CI-AKI) is defined as a deterioration in renal function after administration of radiologic iodinated contrast media (CM). Iodixanol, showed a lower CI-AKI incidence than low-osmolar contrast media (LOCM). A cost-

A review: Radiographic iodinated contrast media-induced thyroid dysfunction.
Thyroid hormone production is dependent on adequate iodine intake. Excess iodine is generally well-tolerated, but thyroid dysfunction can occur in susceptible individuals after excess iodine exposure. Radiological iodinated contrast media represent a

Myasthenia Gravis following Low-Osmolality Iodinated Contrast Media.
We describe the case of 79-year-old man admitted to our general hospital for a 6-week history of progressive dysphagia to solids and liquids associated with weight loss. To reach a diagnosis a total body CT scan with low-osmolality iodinate contrast

Iodinated contrast media electro-degradation: process performance and degradation pathways.
The electrochemical degradation of six of the most widely used iodinated contrast media was investigated. Batch experiments were performed under constant current conditions using two DSA® electrodes (titanium coated with a proprietary and patented mi

Comparison of iodinated trihalomethanes formation during aqueous chlor(am)ination of different iodinated X-ray contrast media compounds in the presence of natural organic matter.
Iodinated trihalomethanes (I-THMs) formation during chlorination and chloramination of five iodinated X-ray contrast media (ICM) compounds (iopamidol, iopromide, iodixanol, histodenz, and diatrizoate) in the presence of natural organic matter (NOM) w

Adding the power of iodinated contrast media to the credibility of mammography in breast cancer diagnosis.
Dual-energy contrast-enhanced spectral mammography (CESM) represents a relatively new diagnostic tool adjunct to mammography. The aim of this study was to strengthen the breast imaging-reporting and data system (BIRADS) classification score in order

Effect of intravenous infusion of iodinated contrast media on the coronary blood flow in dogs.
Coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA) is obtained using peripheral intravenous iodinated contrast agents (ICA) injection. There is continuing attempts to derive coronary physiological information like coronary blood flow (CBF) and/or fracti
