Parenteral drug products should be inspected visually for particulate matter and discoloration prior to administration, whenever solution and container permit. Iopamidol solutions should be used only if clear and within the normal colorless to pale yellow range. Discard any product which shows signs of crystallization or damage to the container-closure system, which includes the glass container, stopper and/or crimp.
The transferring of ISOVUE from the ISOVUE Imaging Bulk Package container should be performed utilizing aseptic technique. The Imaging Bulk Package closure may be penetrated only one time, with a suitable sterile component of the automated contrast injection system or contrast management system approved or cleared for use with this Imaging Bulk Package.
As with all radiopaque contrast agents, only the lowest dose of ISOVUE necessary to obtain adequate visualization should be used. A lower dose reduces the possibility of an adverse reaction. Most procedures do not require use of either a maximum dose or the highest available concentration of ISOVUE; the combination of dose and ISOVUE concentration to be used should be carefully individualized, and factors such as age, body size, size of the vessel and its blood flow rate, anticipated pathology and degree and extent of opacification required, structure(s) or area to be examined, disease processes affecting the patient, and equipment and technique to be employed should be considered.
CECT OF THE HEAD: The suggested dose for ISOVUE-300 is 100 to 200 mL by intravenous administration. Imaging may be performed immediately after completion of administration.
CECT OF THE BODY: The usual adult dose range for ISOVUE-300 is 100 to 200 mL administered by rapid intravenous infusion or bolus injection.
