Diatrizoic Acid Properties

Diatrizoic Acid



Diatrizoic Acid is a radiocontrast agent containing iodine. It is used as an alternative to barium sulfate for medical imaging of the gastrointestinal tract. It is indicated for use in patients who are allergic to barium, or in cases where the barium might leak into the abdominal cavity. It does not coat the stomach/bowel lining as well as barium, thus it is not used commonly for this purpose.
