iothalamate

 [i″o-thal´ah-māt]
a water-soluble iodinated radiopaque medium for a variety of radiographic procedures, including angiography, arthrography, urography, cholangiography, and computed tomographic imaging. Available as iothalamate meglumine, iothalamate sodium, or a mixture of the two salts.

iothalamate

/io·thal·a·mate/ (-thal´ah-māt) a radiopaque medium for a variety of radiographic procedures, including angiography, arthrography, urography, cholangiography, and computed tomographic imaging; used as the meglumine or sodium salt, or a combination.
