The degradation of the iodinated contrast media diatrizoate and iopromide was investigated in laboratory tests. With regard to the expected behaviour of the contrast media in the environment, test systems with activated sludge, river water and river water plus sediment were established. In some of the experiments 14C-labelled contrast media were used to… CONTINUE READING
