Diatrizoate meglumine is utilised during X-ray and computed tomography (CT) scans in the field of medicine. It is a member of the group of substances known as iodinated contrast agents. This drug is injected into the body during imaging procedures to improve the visibility of specific organs, blood vessels, or tissues on the X-ray or CT pictures. It functions by absorbing X-rays and making itself appear opaque or dense on the images that arise, enhancing the contrast between various structures. The main function of diatrizoate meglumine is to see the gastrointestinal tract, including the oesophagus, stomach, and intestines. It can be used to find anomalies, obstructions, tumours etc.
