For use in double contrast radiography of the esophagus, stomach and duodenum.
E‑Z‑HD™ is a barium sulfate for suspension (98% w/w) for oral administration. Each 100 g contains 98 g 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. The active ingredient is barium sulfate.
Barium sulfate occurs as a fine, white, odorless, tasteless, bulky powder which is free from grittiness. Its aqueous suspensions are neutral to litmus. It is practically insoluble in water, solutions of acids and alkalies, and organic solvents.
