Visipaque is classified as a radiopaque contrast agent. The drug contains iodine, a substance that is able to absorb x-rays. As Visipaque flows through the blood vessels and organs, the iodine in the drug makes them appear darker during radiographic examinations. This makes the body organs stand out on the X-ray film. This assists the doctor in identifying any problem that may be affecting that particular organ.
