Metrizamide cisternography with hypocycloidal tomography: Preliminary results

Academic Article


  • Metrizamide (Amipaque), a nonionic water soluble contrast agent, has been shown to be safe and efficacious for lumbar myelography. Clinical trials of cervical, thoracic, and even intracranial examinations have produced good results. Despite an inherent neurotoxicity, significant complications have been quite rare, and patient tolerance in general is remarkably good. Preliminary results of metrizamide cisternograms using hypocycloidal tomography are presented to illustrate the anatomic detail which can be demonstrated using this technique.
