Urograms with the compound Uroselectan were performed. This mono-iodinated compound was developed further into the di-iodinated compounds, Uroselectan-B (Neo-ipax) and diodone (Diodrast) and in 1952 the first tri-iodinatcd compound, sodium acetrizoate (Urokon), was introduced into clinical radiology. Sodium acetrizoate was based on a 6-carbon ring structure, tri-iodo benzoic acid, and was the precursor of all modern water-soluble contrast media. In 1955 a much safer derivative became available - diatrizoate (Urografin, Hypaque).

Water-soluble contrast medium (2-3% Urografin flavoured to disguise the taste [15-20 ml Urografin 150 diluted in 1 1 of orange squash]) or low-density barium suspensions (2% w/v) can be used. 1.
