Abstract

In an open investigation on 100 patients, changes in the electroencephalogram following ascending cervical myelography with iopamidol 250 or metrizamide were studied. In the postmyelographic EEG, there were normal findings in 36 patients after iopamidol and 26 after metrizamide. A comparison of the pathological results after iopamidol and metrizamide yielded a relation of 6:2 for mild, 2:5 for moderate, and 0:6 for severe degree of slowing, 4:6 for basal theta wave activation, and 2:5 for increased cerebral excitability. The results were statistically significant on the 5% level according to the chi-square test.
