Tagitol V Barium sulfate Suspension (40% w/v, 30% w/w)
Tagitol V is a low-volume radiopaque marker that blends into stool as it forms. With just a 20mL dose with breakfast, lunch and dinner the day prior to the exam, Tagitol V provides immediate, visible identification of retained feces via comparative density analysis, simplifying the distinction between tagged feces and colonic abnormality.
Barium Sulfate Suspension 40% w/v, 30% w/w for oral administration.
Each 100 mL contains 40g barium sulfate. Barium sulfate, due to its high molecular density is opaque to x-rays and therefore, acts as a positive contrast agent for radiographic studies.
Each box contains 3 bottles of 20mL each (60mL total) 40% w/v.
- For use in opacifying residual stool in the colon in Computed Tomographic Colonography (CTC).
- An ACRIN CT-Colonography Trial Standard
