Iopamidol (INN, tradenames Iopamiro, Isovue, Iopamiron, and Niopam) is a nonionic, low-osmolar iodinated contrast agent, developed by Bracco.

It is available in various concentrations, from 200 to 370 mgI/mL.

Iopamidol is primarily used in the following:[1]

  • Angiography throughout the cardiovascular system, including cerebral and peripheral arteriography, coronary arteriography and ventriculography, pediatric angiocardiography, selective visceral arteriography and aortography, peripheral venography (phlebography)
  • Adult and pediatric intravenous excretory urography and intravenous adult and pediatric contrast enhancement of computed tomographic (CECT) head and body imaging
