In brief: Treatment or cause?
Do you mean as a treatment or as a cause of archnoiditis? Certainly, gastrografin is not meant to be used in the spine and can cause arachnoiditis.
I'm not aware of it's deliberate use as a treatment. If you need to use it orally, it shouldn't cause arachnoiditis. Make sure you don't have an allergy to iodine.
