Adverse Reactions:

Bronchospasrn, angioneuroticoedema and cardiovascular collapse may occur but these are rare. Acute pulmonary oedema may result from administration of any hyperosmolar agent to patients with poor cardiac function.

Contrast agents may induce a variety of cardiac dysrhythmias, in particular, they may reduce the threshold for ventricular fibrillation. After myelography, headache is common and nausea, vomiting and dizziness are most frequent adverse reactions. Good hydration of the patient must be encouraged both before and after exam.
