An iodine-based: contrast material. There are several different ones commercially available from various manufacterers, so you should contact your facility to see which one they use if you want to know specifically.

Although all x-ray contrast agents use iodine, the issues for contrast agents is the molecule that carries the iodine. It is this molecule that may be associated with adverse reactions. Check with the center to know which one it is.
