In this volume experts answer questions which are frequently asked about theproperties and handling of X-ray contrast media, providing a good source of reference in the use of these agents and which should help to reduce the rate of adverrse effects. In addition, basic information is provided on the development, toxicology, pharmacology, pharmacokinetics and clinical testing of X-ray contrast media. Finally, a look at the prospects for contrast media in magnetic resonance imaging and ultrasound underlines the increasing importance of these diagnostic imaging procedures. This book will be of interest to physicians and their staff alike.
