[A new contrast medium emulsion for lymphography (author's transl)].

[Article in German]


A new contrast medium for lymphography has been developed. It is suitable for direct, such as bi-pedal, lymphangiography, and has certain advantages compared with the commercially available contrast medium Ethiodol, such as absence of a lipogranulomatous reaction and less extensive oil emboli in the lungs. It is also possible to use the substance for indirect, retrosternal lymphography. The substance is indirect, retrosternal lymphography. The substance is an emulsion of triglycerides of iodinated poppy seed oil. The method of preparation of the emulsion is described.
