Audit on safe use of Hyoscine-N-butyl bromide (Buscopan) in patients with significant pre-existing cardiac conditions for radiologic procedures

Hyoscine-N-butyl bromide (Buscopan) is a medication commonly administered to facilitate image acquisition during radiologic studies. The antimuscarinic properties of Buscopan allow it to reduce bowel motion-artifacts, to achieve adequate bowel distension in enterographic and colonographic procedures, and to reduce tubal spasm in hysterosalpingography.
