Iopanoic acid and ipodate, iodinated contrast media previously used for cholecystography, are potent inhibitors of the conversion of thyroxine (T4) to triiodothyronine (T3), the bioactivethyroid hormone.
Inhibition of conversion of T4 to T3 occurs with administration of amiodarone and iodinated contrast media such as ipodate, iopanoic acid, and tyropanoate.
