Two new intravenous cholegraphic agents, iotroxate and iodoxamate, hold a lower general toxicity, lower protein binding, and claim a higher rate of biliary excretion. Both compounds proved to be equally effective in opacifying the gallbladder and the bile ducts in a double-blind clinical study comprising 400 cases. Iotroxate gave significantly earlier good or adequate visualization as a result of its higher excretion rate by the liver (P less than 0.05). Side effects were observed in fewer… Expand
Intravenous cholangiography by bolus injection of meglumine iotroxamate and meglumine iodoxamate: a comparative trial of two new contrast media.
The results showed no statistically significant difference in biliary tree opacification; more frequent renal excretion of contrast with iodoxamate; and contrary to previous reports a slightly higher incidence of side effects with iotroxamate. Expand
The biliary opacification characteristics and toxicity of meglumine iotroxate (Biliscopin) were studied in normal cats and suggest that BilISCopin can be used safely in the cat. Expand
Drip infusion cholangiography using iotroxamide. Double blind comparison with ioglycamide.
In patients with serum bilirubin levels of less than 34 mumoles/litre visualization of the bile duct was significantly better with iotroxamide than with ioglycamide, and toxic side effects were observed in 8% of patients receiving iogly camide and in only 3% of the patients given iOTroxamide.

Adverse Reactions to Iotroxate at Intravenous Cholangiography
It is concluded that infusion of iotroxate in an amount which approximates to the transportation maximum of the liver is the least toxic way of performing intravenous cholangiography with an optimum filling of the bile ducts. Expand
Iotroxamide studies in man--biliary iodine levels following bolus injection and slow infusion. Comparison with ioglycamide.
It is concluded that Iotroxamide is likely to prove superior to Ioglycamide as a cholangiographic agent and in terms of opacification of the biliary tree there is little to choose between bolus injection and slow infusion techniques when using IOTroxamide. Expand
Helical CT cholangiography in the evaluation of the biliary tract: application to the diagnosis of choledocholithiasis
HCT cholangiography is a reliable technique that is similar to direct cholangsiography in visualizing biliary anatomy, anatomic variants, and choledocholithiasis. Expand
Reevaluation of Spiral CT Cholangiography: Basic Considerations and Reliability for Detecting Choledocholithiasis in 80 Patients
The characteristics and diagnostic accuracy of spiral CT cholangiography for detecting biliary calculi were reevaluate and it was found that it is a reliable, noninvasive, and accessible technique for detecting choledocholithiasis. Expand
Effect of Intravenous Morphine Comedication on Bile Duct Visualization, Diameter and Volume Applying Intravenous CT Cholangiography in a Porcine Liver Model
Intravenous morphine comedication failed to improve bile duct visualization and to increase bileduct diameter and volume applying CT cholangiography in a porcine liver model. Expand

Experience with contrast enhanced computed tomographic examinations of 13 patients with hepatic tumors using a new cholangiographic contrast material, meglumine iotroxate, indicates that contrast enhanced CT using meglums is a promising alternative to conventional CT in the detection of hepatic cancers.

Evaluation of biliary anatomy in the caudate lobe using drip infusion cholangiography-computed tomography
The number of CBs joining the left hepatic duct system (LHDS) was associated with the position of the RPHD and the PV, and a detailed evaluation was possible. Expand
