ETHIODOL
(ethiodized oil) Injection

A Low Viscosity Radio-Opaque Diagnostic Agent
NOT FOR INTRAVASCULAR, INTRATHECAL OR INTRABRONCHIAL USE

DRUG DESCRIPTION

Ethiodol, brand of ethiodized oil, is a sterile injectable radio-opaque diagnostic agent for use in hysterosalpingography and lymphography. It contains 37% iodine (475 mg/mL) organically combined with ethyl esters of the fatty acids (primarily as ethyl monoiodostearate and ethyl diiodostearate) of poppyseed oil. Stabilized with poppyseed oil, 1%. The precise structure of Ethiodol (ethiodized oil) is unknown at this time. Ethiodol (ethiodized oil) is a straw to amber colored, oily fluid, which because of simplified molecular structure, possesses a greatly reduced viscosity (1.280 specific gravity at 15° C yields viscosity of 0.5 - 1.0 poise). This high fluidity provides a new flexibility for radiographic exploration.
