    2. Use sterile technique for all handling and administration of OMNIPAQUE for intravascular, intrathecal, intraarticular, and body cavity administration.
    3. OMNIPAQUE oral solution 9 and 12 are indicated for oral use only [see Contraindications (4) and Warnings and Precautions (5.2)].
    4. Do not use if tamper-evident ring is broken or missing.
    5. OMNIPAQUE injection may be administered at either body (37°C) or room temperature.
    6. Inspect OMNIPAQUE injection for particulate matter or discoloration before administration, whenever solution and container permit. Do not administer if OMNIPAQUE injection contains particulate matter or is discolored.
    7. Do not mix OMNIPAQUE injection with, or inject in intravenous lines containing, other drugs or total nutritional admixtures.
    8. Use the lowest dose necessary to obtain adequate visualization.
    9. Individualize the volume, strength, and rate of administration of OMNIPAQUE injection. Consider factors such as age, body weight, vessel size, blood flow rate within the vessel, anticipated pathology, degree and extent of opacification required, structures or area to be examined, disease processes affecting the patient, and equipment and technique to be employed.
    10. Avoid extravasation when administering OMNIPAQUE injection intravascularly, especially in patients with severe arterial or venous disease [see Warnings and Precautions (5.6)].
    11. Hydrate patients before and after intravascular administration of OMNIPAQUE injection [see Warnings and Precautions (5.4)].
    12. Each bottle of OMNIPAQUE injection and oral solution is intended for one procedure only. Discard any unused portion.

    2.2 Intrathecal Dosage and Administration
    • Rate of injection: Injection should be made slowly over 1 to 2 minutes
    • Repeat procedures: If sequential or repeat examinations are required, a suitable interval of time between administrations should be observed to allow for normal clearance of the drug from the body; at least 48 hours should be allowed before repeat examination; however, whenever possible, 5 to 7 days is recommended.
    • If computerized tomographic (CT) myelography follows myelography, delay imaging several hours to allow the degree of contrast to decrease.

  • 4 CONTRAINDICATIONS


  • 5 WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS

    5.1 Risks Associated with Inadvertent Intrathecal Administration

    OMNIPAQUE injection 140 and 350 are contraindicated for intrathecal use [see Contraindications (4) and Dosage and Administration (2.1)]. Inadvertent intrathecal administration can cause death, convulsions/seizures, cerebral hemorrhage, coma, paralysis, arachnoiditis, acute renal failure, cardiac arrest, rhabdomyolysis, hyperthermia, and brain edema.

    5.2 Risks Associated with Inadvertent Parenteral Administration of Omnipaque Oral Solution

    OMNIPAQUE oral solution 9 and 12 are contraindicated for parenteral administration [see Contraindications (4) and Dosage and Administration (2.1)]. Adverse reactions such as hemolysis may occur if administered intravascularly. Do not administer OMNIPAQUE oral solution 9 and 12 parenterally.

    5.3 Hypersensitivity Reactions

    OMNIPAQUE can cause life-threatening or fatal hypersensitivity reactions including anaphylaxis. Manifestations include respiratory arrest, laryngospasm, bronchospasm, angioedema, and shock. Most severe reactions develop shortly after the start of the injection (within 3 minutes), but reactions can occur up to hours later. There is an increased risk in patients with a history of a previous reaction to contrast agent, and known allergies (i.e., bronchial asthma, drug, or food allergies) or other hypersensitivities. Premedication with antihistamines or corticosteroids does not prevent serious life-threatening reactions, but may reduce both their incidence and severity.

    Obtain a history of allergy, hypersensitivity, or hypersensitivity reactions to iodinated contrast agents and always have emergency resuscitation equipment and trained personnel available prior to OMNIPAQUE administration. Monitor all patients for hypersensitivity reactions.

    5.4 Contrast Induced Acute Kidney Injury

    Acute kidney injury, including renal failure, may occur after parenteral administration of OMNIPAQUE. Risk factors include: pre-existing renal impairment, dehydration, diabetes mellitus, congestive heart failure, advanced vascular disease, elderly age, concomitant use of nephrotoxic or diuretic medications, multiple myeloma / paraproteinaceous diseases, repetitive and/or large doses of an iodinated contrast agent.

    Use the lowest necessary dose of OMNIPAQUE in patients with renal impairment. Adequately hydrate patients prior to and following parenteral administration of OMNIPAQUE. Do not use laxatives, diuretics, or preparatory dehydration prior to OMNIPAQUE administration.

    5.5 Cardiovascular Adverse Reactions

    Life-threatening or fatal cardiovascular reactions including hypotension, shock, cardiac arrest have occurred with the parenteral administration of OMNIPAQUE. Most deaths occur during injection or five to ten minutes later, with cardiovascular disease as the main aggravating factor. Cardiac decompensation, serious arrhythmias, and myocardial ischemia or infarction can occur during coronary arteriography and ventriculography.

    Based upon clinical literature reported deaths from the administration of iodinated contrast agents range from 6.6 per million (0.00066%) to 1 in 10,000 (0.01%). Use the lowest necessary dose of OMNIPAQUE in patients with congestive heart failure and always have emergency resuscitation equipment and trained personnel available. Monitor all patients for severe cardiovascular reactions.

    5.6 Thromboembolic Events

    Angiocardiography

    Serious, rarely fatal, thromboembolic events causing myocardial infarction and stroke can occur during angiocardiography procedures with both ionic and nonionic contrast media. During these procedures, increased thrombosis and activation of the complement system occurs. Risk factors for thromboembolic events include: length of procedure, catheter and syringe material, underlying disease state, and concomitant medications.

    To minimize thromboembolic events, use meticulous angiographic techniques, and minimize the length of the procedure. Avoid blood remaining in contact with syringes containing iodinated contrast agents, which increases the risk of clotting. Avoid angiocardiography in patients with homocystinuria because of the risk of inducing thrombosis and embolism.

    5.7 Extravasation and Injection Site Reactions

    Extravasation of OMNIPAQUE during intravascular injection may cause tissue necrosis and/or compartment syndrome, particularly in patients with severe arterial or venous disease. Ensure intravascular placement of catheters prior to injection. Monitor patients for extravasation and advise patients to seek medical care for progression of symptoms.

    5.8 Thyroid Storm in Patients with Hyperthyroidism

    Thyroid storm has occurred after the intravascular use of iodinated contrast agents in patients with hyperthyroidism, or with an autonomously functioning thyroid nodule. Evaluate the risk in such patients before use of OMNIPAQUE.

    5.9 Hypertensive Crisis in Patients with Pheochromocytoma

    Hypertensive crisis has occurred after the use of iodinated contrast agents in patient with pheochromocytoma. Monitor patients when administering OMNIPAQUE intravascularly if pheochromocytoma or catecholamine-secreting paragangliomas are suspected. Inject the minimum amount of contrast necessary, assess the blood pressure throughout the procedure, and have measures for treatment of a hypertensive crisis readily available.

    5.10 Sickle Cell Crisis in Patients with Sickle Cell Disease

    Iodinated contrast agents when administered intravascularly may promote sickling in individuals who are homozygous for sickle cell disease. Hydrate patients prior to and following OMNIPAQUE administration and use OMNIPAQUE only if the necessary imaging information cannot be obtained with alternative imaging modalities.

    5.11 Severe Cutaneous Adverse Reactions

    Severe cutaneous adverse reactions (SCAR) may develop from 1 hour to several weeks after intravascular contrast agent administration. These reactions include Stevens-Johnson syndrome and toxic epidermal necrolysis (SJS/TEN), acute generalized exanthematous pustulosis (AGEP) and drug reaction with eosinophilia and systemic symptoms (DRESS). Reaction severity may increase and time to onset may decrease with repeat administration of contrast agents; prophylactic medications may not prevent or mitigate severe cutaneous adverse reactions. Avoid administering OMNIPAQUE to patients with a history of a severe cutaneous adverse reaction to OMNIPAQUE.

    Pediatrics Patients (Oral and Rectal Administration)

    In clinical studies involving 58 pediatric patients, the adverse reactions were found to mostly affect the gastrointestinal system with diarrhea (36%), vomiting (9%), nausea (5%) and abdominal pain (2%). However, fever (5%), hypotension (2%) and urticaria (2%) were also reported.

    Oral Administration for CT of the Abdomen in Conjunction with Intravenous Administration

    Adults

    In a controlled clinical study involving 44 adult patients receiving oral administration of diluted OMNIPAQUE (4-9 mg iodine/mL) in conjunction with intravenously injected OMNIPAQUE 300 for CT examination of the abdomen, adverse reactions were limited to a single report of vomiting.

    Pediatric Patients

    In clinical studies involving 69 pediatric patients receiving oral administration of diluted OMNIPAQUE (9-29 mg iodine/mL) in conjunction with intravenously administered OMNIPAQUE 240 and OMNIPAQUE 300 for CT examination of the abdomen, adverse reactions were limited to a single report of vomiting (1.4%).

    Body Cavity Use

    Adults

    In controlled clinical studies involving 285 adult patients for various body cavity examinations using OMNIPAQUE 240, 300 and 350, the most frequent adverse reactions were administration site reactions: pain 26% and swelling 22%, were exclusively reported for arthrography and were generally related to the procedure rather than the contrast medium. Patients also experienced heat (7%). All other adverse reaction occurred at a rate less than or equal to 1%.

    Pediatric Patients

    No adverse reactions associated with the use of OMNIPAQUE for VCU procedures were reported in 51 pediatric patients studied.

    6.2 Post-marketing Experience

    The following additional reactions listed by indication have been identified during post-approval use of OMNIPAQUE. Because these reactions are reported voluntarily from a population of uncertain size, it is not always possible to reliably estimate their frequency or establish a causal relationship to drug exposure.

  • 7 DRUG INTERACTIONS

    7.1 Drug-Drug Interactions

    Metformin

    In patients with renal impairment, metformin can cause lactic acidosis. Iodinated contrast agents appear to increase the risk of metformin-induced lactic acidosis, possibly as a result of worsening renal function. Stop metformin at the time of, or prior to, OMNIPAQUE administration in patients with an eGFR between 30 and 60 mL/min/1.73 m2; in patients with a history of hepatic impairment, alcoholism or heart failure; or in patients who will be administered intra-arterial iodinated contrast. Re-evaluate eGFR 48 hours after the imaging procedure, and reinstitute metformin only after renal function is stable.

    Radioactive Iodine

    Administration of iodinated contrast agents may interfere with thyroid uptake of radioactive iodine (I-131 and I-123) and decrease therapeutic and diagnostic efficacy in patients with carcinoma of the thyroid. The decrease in efficacy lasts for 6-8 weeks.

    Beta-adrenergic Blocking Agents

    The use of beta-adrenergic blocking agents lowers the threshold for and increases the severity of contrast reactions and reduces the responsiveness of treatment of hypersensitivity reactions with epinephrine. Because of the risk of hypersensitivity reactions, use caution when administering OMNIPAQUE to patients taking beta-blockers.

    Drugs that Lower Seizure Threshold

    Drugs that lower seizure threshold, especially phenothiazine derivatives including those used for their antihistaminic or antinauseant properties, are not recommended for use with intrathecal administration of OMNIPAQUE.

    CNS Active Drugs

    Drugs such as monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitors, tricyclic antidepressants, CNS stimulants, psychoactive drugs described as analeptics, major tranquilizers, or antipsychotic drugs. Such medications should be discontinued at least 48 hours before myelography, should not be used for the control of nausea or vomiting during or after myelography, and should not be resumed for at least 24 hours post procedure. In non-elective procedures in patients on these drugs, consider prophylactic use of anticonvulsants.

    7.2 Drug Laboratory Test Interactions

    Effect on Thyroid Tests

    If iodine-containing isotopes are to be administered for the diagnosis of thyroid disease, the iodine-binding capacity of thyroid tissue may be reduced for up to 2 weeks after contrast medium administration. Thyroid function tests that do not depend on iodine estimation, e.g., T3 resin uptake or direct thyroxine assays, are not affected.


  • 8 USE IN SPECIFIC POPULATIONS

    8.1 Pregnancy

    Risk Summary

    There are no data with iohexol use in pregnant women to inform any drug-associated risks. Iohexol crosses the placenta and reaches fetal tissues in small amounts (see Data). In animal reproduction studies, no developmental toxicity occurred with intravenous iohexol administration to rats and rabbits at doses up to 0.4 (rat) and 0.5 (rabbit) times the maximum recommended human intravenous dose (see Data).

    The estimated background risk of major birth defects and miscarriage for the indicated population is unknown. All pregnancies have a background risk of birth defect, loss or other adverse outcomes. In the U.S. general population, the estimated background risk of major birth defects and miscarriage in clinically recognized pregnancies is 2-4% and 15-20%, respectively.

    Data

    Human Data

    Literature reports show that intravenously administered iohexol crosses the placenta and is visualized in the digestive tract of exposed infants after birth.

    Animal Data

    Iohexol was neither embryotoxic nor teratogenic in either rats or rabbits at the following dose levels tested: 1.0, 2.0, 4.0 g iodine/kg in rats, administered intravenously to 3 groups of 25 dams once daily during days 6 through 15 of pregnancy; 0.3, 1.0, 2.5 g iodine/kg in rabbits, administered intravenously to 3 groups of 18 rabbits dosed once a day during days 6 through 18 of pregnancy.

    8.2 Lactation

    Risk Summary

    Published literature reports that breast feeding after intravenous iohexol administration to the mother would result in the infant receiving an oral dose of approximately 0.7% of the maternal intravenous dose; however, lactation studies have not been conducted with oral, intrathecal, or intracavity administration of iohexol. There is no information on the effects of the drug on the breastfed infant or on milk production. Iodinated contrast agents are excreted unchanged in human milk in very low amounts with poor absorption from the gastrointestinal tract of a breastfed infant. Exposure to iohexol to a breastfed infant can be minimized by temporary discontinuation of breastfeeding (see Clinical Considerations). The developmental and health benefits of breastfeeding should be considered along with the mother's clinical need for OMNIPAQUE and any potential adverse effects on the breastfed infant from OMNIPAQUE or from the underlying maternal condition.

    Clinical Considerations

    Interruption of breastfeeding after exposure to iodinated contrast agents is not necessary because the potential exposure of the breastfed infant to iodine is small. However, a lactating woman may consider interrupting breastfeeding and pumping and discarding breast milk for 10 hours (approximately 5 elimination half-lives) after OMNIPAQUE administration to minimize drug exposure to a breastfed infant.

    8.4 Pediatric Use

    Intrathecal Use

    The safety and effectiveness of OMNIPAQUE 180 have been established in pediatric patients 2 weeks to 17 years of age for myelography (lumbar, thoracic, cervical, total columnar) and for CT (myelography, cisternography). Use of OMNIPAQUE 180 is supported by controlled clinical studies in adults for myelography, in addition to clinical studies in pediatric patients undergoing myelography. The safety and effectiveness of OMNIPAQUE 180 have not been established for intrathecal use in patient pediatric patients less than 2 weeks of age. The safety and effectiveness of OMNIPAQUE 240 and 300 have not been established in pediatric patients for myelography (lumbar, thoracic, cervical, total columnar) and for CT (myelography, cisternography, or ventriculography).

    Intravascular Use

    Angiocardiography (Ventriculography, Pulmonary Arteriography, Venography, and Studies of the Collateral Arteries) and Aortography

    The safety and effectiveness of OMNIPAQUE 300 have been established in pediatric patients from birth to 17 years of age for angiocardiography (ventriculography) and of OMNIPAQUE 350 in pediatric patients from birth to 17 years of age for angiocardiography (ventriculography, pulmonary arteriography, venography, and studies of the collateral arteries) and aortography. Use of OMNIPAQUE 300 and 350 is supported by controlled clinical studies in adults for angiocardiography and aortography, in addition to controlled clinical studies in pediatric patients undergoing angiocardiography, including aortography. The safety and effectiveness of OMNIPAQUE 300 have not been established in pediatric patients for aortography.

    Intra-arterial Digital Subtraction Angiography, Intravenous Digital Subtraction Angiography, Cerebral Arteriography, or Peripheral Arteriography and Venography

    The safety and effectiveness of OMNIPAQUE have not been established in pediatric patients for intra-arterial digital subtraction angiography, intravenous digital subtraction angiography, cerebral arteriography, or peripheral arteriography and venography.

    CT of the Head and Body

    The safety and effectiveness of OMNIPAQUE 240 and 300 have been established in pediatric patients from birth to 17 years of age for CT imaging of the head and body. Use of OMNIPAQUE 240 and 300 is supported by controlled clinical studies in adults for head and body CT, in addition to clinical studies in pediatric patients undergoing head CT and in 69 pediatric patients undergoing CT of the abdomen after oral administration of diluted OMNIPAQUE plus intravenous administration of OMNIPAQUE. The safety and effectiveness of OMNIPAQUE 350 have not been established in pediatric patients for CT imaging of the head and body.

    Urography

    The safety and effectiveness of OMNIPQUE 300 have been established in pediatric patients from birth to 17 years of age for urography. Use of OMNIPAQUE 300 is supported by controlled clinical studies in adults for urography, in addition to controlled clinical studies in pediatric patients undergoing urography and clinical safety data in pediatric patients down to birth.

    Oral or Rectal Use.

    Undiluted OMNIPAQUE Injection

    The safety and effectiveness of OMNIPAQUE 180, 240, and 300 administered orally and rectally have been established in pediatric patients, from birth to 17 years of age for examination of the GI tract. Use of OMNIPAQUE 180, 240, and 300 administered orally and rectally is supported by controlled studies in adults for examination of the GI tract, in addition to clinical studies in pediatric patients undergoing examination of the GI tract.

    Oral Use in Conjunction with Intravenous Use

    Diluted OMNIPAQUE Injection

    The safety and effectiveness of OMNIPAQUE injection diluted to concentrations from 9 to 21 mg iodine/mL administered orally in conjunction with OMNIPAQUE injection administered intravenously for CT of the abdomen have been established in pediatric patients from birth to 17 years of age. Use is supported by clinical trials in adults, in addition to clinical studies in 69 pediatric patients undergoing CT of the abdomen after oral administration of diluted OMNIPAQUE plus intravenous administration of OMNIPAQUE.

    OMNIPAQUE Oral Solution

    The safety and effectiveness of OMNIPAQUE oral solution 9 and 12 administered orally in conjunction with OMNIPAQUE injection administered intravenously for CT of the abdomen in pediatric patients have been established in pediatric patients from birth to 17 years of age. Use is supported by the data establishing safety and effectiveness for OMNIPAQUE injection diluted and administered orally in conjunction with OMNIPAQUE injection administered intravenously for CT of the abdomen in pediatric patients.

    Intraarticular Use

    The safety and effectiveness of OMNIPAQUE have not been established in pediatric patients for arthrography.

    Body Cavity Use

    OMNIPAQUE 240, 300, 350 diluted to concentrations from 50 mg iodine/mL to 100 mg iodine/mL is indicated for use in pediatric patients from birth to 17 years of age for voiding cystourethrography (VCU). The use for voiding cystourethrography is supported by clinical studies in 51 pediatric patients undergoing VCU. The safety and effectiveness of OMNIPAQUE have not been established in pediatric patients for ERCP, herniography, or hysterosalpingography.

    In general, the frequency of adverse reactions in pediatric patients was similar to that seen in adults [see Adverse Reactions (6.1)]. Pediatric patients at higher risk of experiencing adverse events during contrast-medium administration may include those having asthma, a sensitivity to medication and/or allergens, congestive heart failure, a serum creatinine greater than 1.5 mg/dL or those less than 12 months of age.

    Thyroid function tests indicative of hypothyroidism or transient thyroid suppression have been uncommonly reported following iodinated contrast media administration to pediatric patients, including infants. Some patients were treated for hypothyroidism [see Adverse Reactions (6.2)].

    8.5 Geriatric Use

    In clinical studies of OMNIPAQUE for CT, 52/299 (17%) of patients were 70 and over. No overall differences in safety were observed between these patients and younger patients. Other reported clinical experience has not identified differences in response between the elderly and younger patients, but greater sensitivity of some older individuals cannot be ruled out. In general, dose selection for an elderly patient should be cautious usually starting at the low end of the dosing range, reflecting the greater frequency of decreased hepatic, renal or cardiac function, and of concomitant disease or other drug therapy.


  • 10 OVERDOSAGE

    10.1 Intravascular Administration

    The adverse effects of overdosage are life-threatening and affect mainly the pulmonary and cardiovascular systems. The symptoms included: cyanosis, bradycardia, acidosis, pulmonary hemorrhage, convulsions, coma, and cardiac arrest. Treatment of an overdosage is directed toward the support of all vital functions, and prompt institution of symptomatic therapy. Iohexol displays a low affinity for serum or plasma proteins and is poorly bound to serum albumin and can be dialyzed.

  • 12 CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY

    12.1 Mechanism of Action

    The iodine atoms in iohexol provide attenuation of X-rays in direct proportion to the concentration of iohexol. Since concentration changes over time, iohexol provides time-dependent image contrast which may assist in visualizing body structures.

    12.2 Pharmacodynamics

    Intrathecal Administration

    The initial concentration and volume of the contrast medium, in conjunction with patient manipulation and the volume of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) into which the contrast medium is placed, will determine the extent of the contrast that can be achieved. Following intrathecal injection in conventional radiography, OMNIPAQUE 180, 240, and 300 will continue to provide contrast for at least 30 minutes. Slow diffusion of iohexol takes place throughout the CSF with subsequent absorption into the bloodstream. At approximately 1 hour following injection, contrast will no longer be sufficient for conventional myelography.

    After administration into the lumbar subarachnoid space, computerized tomography shows the presence of contrast medium in the thoracic region in about 1 hour, in the cervical region in about 2 hours, and in the basal cisterns in 3 to 4 hours.

    Intravascular Administration

    Following intravascular administration of OMNIPAQUE, the degree of contrast enhancement is directly related to the iodine concentration of an administered dose; peak iodine blood concentrations occur immediately (15 seconds to 120 seconds) following rapid intravenous injection. The time to maximum contrast enhancement can vary, depending on the organ, from the time that peak blood iodine concentrations are reached to one hour after intravenous bolus administration. When a delay between peak blood iodine concentrations and peak contrast is present, it suggests that radiographic contrast enhancement is at least in part dependent on the accumulation of iodine containing agent within the lesion and outside the blood pool.

    Oral Administration

    Orally administered OMNIPAQUE produces visualization of the gastrointestinal tract. Less than 1% of orally administered iohexol is recovered in the urine, suggesting minimal amounts are absorbed from the normal gastrointestinal tract. This amount may increase in the presence of bowel perforation or bowel obstruction.

    Intraarticular Administration

    Visualization of the joint spaces can be accomplished by direct injection of contrast medium. For intraarticular cavities, the injected iohexol is absorbed into the surrounding tissue and subsequently absorbed into systemic circulation.

    Body Cavity Administration

    For most body cavities, the injected iohexol is absorbed into the surrounding tissue and subsequently absorbed into systemic circulation. Examinations of the uterus (hysterosalpingography) and bladder (voiding cystourethrography) involve the almost immediate drainage of contrast medium from the cavity upon conclusion of the radiographic procedure.

    12.3 Pharmacokinetics

    Following the intravenous administration of iohexol (between 500 mg iodine/kg to 1500 mg iodine/kg) to 16 adult human subjects, apparent first-order terminal elimination half-life was 12.6 hrs and total body clearance was 131 (98-165) mL/min. Clearance was not dose dependent.

    Absorption

    As evidenced by the amount recovered in urine, <1% of orally administered iohexol is absorbed from the normal gastrointestinal tract. This amount may increase in the presence of bowel perforation or bowel obstruction.

    Distribution

    In 16 adult subjects (receiving between 500 mg iodine/kg to 1500 mg iodine/kg intravenous iohexol) the plasma volume of distribution was165 (108-219) mL/kg.

    In five adult patients receiving 16 mL to 18 mL of OMNIPAQUE (180 mg iodine/mL) by lumbar intrathecal injection the plasma volume of distribution was 559 (350-849) mL/kg.

    Elimination

    Metabolism

    No significant metabolism, deiodination or biotransformation occurs.

    Excretion

    Following intravascular or intrathecal administration, iohexol is excreted unchanged by glomerular filtration. Approximately 90% of the intravenously injected iohexol dose is excreted within the first 24 hours. Following intravascular administration, peak urine concentration occurs in the first hour after injection.


  • 13 NONCLINICAL TOXICOLOGY

    13.1 Carcinogenesis, Mutagenesis, Impairment of Fertility

    Long-term animal studies have not been performed with iohexol to evaluate carcinogenic potential. Iohexol was not genotoxic in a series of studies, including the Ames test, the mouse lymphoma TK locus forward mutation assay, and a mouse micronucleus assay. Iohexol did not impair the fertility of male or female rats when repeatedly administered at intravenous dosages up to 4 g iodine/kg.
