Ultravist is a medicine used as a contrast agent in patients undergoing radiological procedures such as computer tomography (CT) and CT pulmonary angiograms (CTPAs). The active ingredient, iopromide, is administered to the patient via the intravascular route, meaning it is directly delivered into the blood vessel to be examined, either arteries or veins. Common side effects with Ultravist include injection site reactions, headache and nausea.
