Conference paper


New contrast media with cellular fixation have been investigated since 1971 [3]. High doses are necessary in classical radiology. Low doses are sufficient with CT scanner, and with these doses the toxicity is low. These facts explain the renewed interest in the iodinated lipid emulsions [1, 7]. However, the emulsion is still experimental. The optimal size of the particles is a condition for the stability of the emulsion, but also an important factor of its biodistribution and metabolism.
