Physicochemical Properties of Water-Soluble Contrast Media

  • Ulrich Speck


The most important physicochemical properties of water-soluble, iodinated CM are their solubility, the viscosity and osmolality of the solutions, the lipophilic or hydrophilic properties of the iodine-containing molecule and the electrical charge (table 4). In practice, these properties have the following significance:
