Indications and Usage for ISOVUE®-300 (Iopamidol Injection 61%) Imaging Bulk Package* and ISOVUE®-370 (Iopamidol Injection 76%) Imaging Bulk Package*
ISOVUE (Iopamidol Injection) Imaging Bulk Package (IBP) is indicated for intravenous contrast enhancement of computed tomographic (CECT) imaging of the head and body in adult and pediatric patients.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION:
ISOVUE (Iopamidol Injection) IS NOT FOR INTRATHECAL USE. Iopamidol Injection is available as ISOVUE-M® (Iopamidol Injection) for intrathecal administration.
Caution must be exercised in patients with severely impaired renal function, those with combined renal and hepatic disease, or anuria, particularly when larger and repeat doses are administered. Radiopaque diagnostic contrast agents are potentially hazardous in patients with multiple myeloma or other paraproteinemia, particularly in those with therapeutically resistant anuria. Caution should be exercised in hydrating patients with underlying conditions that may be worsened by fluid overload, such as congestive heart failure. Diabetic nephropathy may predispose to acute renal impairment following intravascular contrast media administration. Acute renal impairment following contrast media administration may precipitate lactic acidosis in patients who are taking biguanides. Preparatory dehydration is dangerous and may contribute to acute renal failure in patients with advanced vascular disease, diabetic patients, and in susceptible nondiabetic patients (often elderly with preexisting renal disease). Patients should be well hydrated prior to and following iopamidol administration.
The possibility of a reaction, including serious, life-threatening, fatal, anaphylactoid or cardiovascular reactions, should always be considered. Patients at increased risk include those with a history of a previous reaction to a contrast medium, patients with a known sensitivity to iodine per se, and patients with a known clinical hypersensitivity (bronchial asthma, hay fever, and food allergies).
*The ISOVUE Imaging Bulk Package is for use with an automated contrast injector or a contrast management system approved or cleared for use with it.
