Intravascular contrast media and premedication

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Iodinated contrast media were first recognized and utilized in the 1920s, after researchers at the Mayo Clinic noted bladder opacification on abdominal radiographs in patients who had received intravenous sodium iodide for the treatment of syphilis. Because of this serendipitous discovery and because of the unique X-ray absorption of iodine, much investigation followed into developing a safe iodinated intravenous contrast medium.
