Diatrizoate is a commonly used x-ray contrast medium. As diatrizoate meglumine and diatrizoate sodium, it is used for gastrointestinal studies, angiography, and urography. The use of diatrizoate is not based on its pharmacologic properties, but on its distribution and elimination from the body. The iodine content of a contrast media is the most important factor, since this component is responsible for the absorption of radiation and the degree of opacification. The high atomic weight of iodine contributes sufficient x-radiation attenuation to impart radiographic contrast with surrounding tissue. Diagnostic radiopaque agents have few known pharmacological effects.
