  ►  Mechanism of Action :   Radiography (including X-ray imaging, computed tomography, and fluoroscopy) is based on the difference between tissues in the extent to which they absorb Xrays. Radiographic contrast media are based on elements with high atomic numbers that absorb X-rays. Ionic monomeric media generally have a very high osmolality when given in concentrations suitable for radiographic visualisation
