General

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.

It is desirable that solutions of radiopaque diagnostic agents for intravascular use be at body temperature when injected. Sterile techniques must be used with any intravascular injection.

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.

Patients should be well hydrated prior to and following ISOVUE (Iopamidol Injection) administration.

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.

Computed Tomography

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.

Equivalent doses of ISOVUE-370 based on organically bound iodine content may also be used.

The total dose for either CECT procedure should not exceed 60 grams of iodine.

Pediatric Computed Tomography

The dosage recommended for use in children for contrast enhanced computed tomography is 1.0 mL/kg to 3.0 mL/kg for ISOVUE-300. It should not be necessary to exceed a total dose of 30 grams of iodine.

Drug Incompatibilities

Many radiopaque contrast agents are incompatible in vitro with some antihistamines and many other drugs; therefore, no other pharmaceuticals should be admixed with contrast agents.
