Iobitridol is a molecule used as a contrast medium in X-ray imaging. 45.6% of the molecular mass is contributed by the three iodine atoms.

Xenetix 300 of Guerbet (Roissy, France) contains Iobitridol in 300 mg iodine/ml concentration. Recommended mean doses are 1.1 to 2.8 ml/kg body mass corresponding to 0,33 to 0,84 g iodine/kg human body mass. Injected into veins it will be filtered out by the kidneys. It is used also to fill joints or the uterus.

Iobitridol is nonionic but water soluble by some -OH- groups.
