Diatrizoate Meglumine and Diatrizoate Sodium Injection

Diatrizoate Meglumine and Diatrizoate Sodium Injection is a water-soluble, radiopaque diagnostic medium used for various imaging procedures. Let’s explore its details:

  • Composition:

    • Diatrizoate Meglumine: A triiodinated benzoic acid derivative containing 37% (w/v) organically bound iodine.
    • Diatrizoate Sodium: Monosodium, 3,5-diacetamido-2,4,6-triiodobenzoate.
    • Each mL contains 370 mg iodine and 3.68 mg (0.16 mEq) sodium.
  • Clinical Uses:

    • Excretory Urography: Enhances visualization of the urinary system.
    • Aortography: Imaging of the aorta.
    • Angiocardiography: Includes ventriculography, pulmonary angiography, and selective coronary arteriography.
    • Peripheral Angiography: For peripheral arteries and veins.
    • Intravenous Digital Arteriography: Visualizing blood vessels.
    • Computed Tomographic Head and Body Imaging: Enhances CT scans.
    • Selective Renal and Visceral Arteriography: Imaging of kidneys and visceral organs.
    • Central Venography: Visualizing central veins.
    • Renal Venography: Imaging of renal veins.
  • Pharmacology:

    • Intravascular injection opacifies vessels, allowing radiographic visualization.
    • Not metabolized; excreted unchanged in urine.
    • Plasma concentration at 10 minutes reflects dose corrected to body size.
  • Precautions:

    • Not for Intrathecal Use: Must not be given into the spine.
    • Liver and Kidney Disease: Use with caution.
    • Edetate Calcium Disodium: Added as a sequestering stabilizing agent.
