Contrast media in double-contrast arthrography of the knee: a comparison of ioxaglate and iothalamate preparations



Contrast media in double-contrast arthrography of the knee: a comparison of ioxaglate and iothalamate preparations



British Journal of Radiology 59(698): 143-146



Hexabrix (sodium and meglumine ioxaglate) is a satisfactory medium for use in double-contrast knee arthrography. It shows no advantage over the ionic medium, meglumine iothalamate, in the quality of the immediate films, but it produces significantly better coating of the meniscus in delayed films and better results in knees which have an effusion. These advantages are to some extent counteracted by the fact that Hexabrix causes more pain or discomfort after the examination than meglumine iothalamate.
