Ioglunide: A New Contrast Medium for Myelography and Cisternography (Animal Experiments and Preliminary Clinical Experience)
Since 1972, metrizamide (Amipaque) has been extensively used for the opacification of perimedullary and pericerebral spaces, and there is a general agreement that the neurotoxicity of this new contrast medium (CM) is definitely lower than that of previous ionic iodinated compounds.
