It is known that there is a high risk of progression of side effects in kidneys, so-called nephropathy induced with X-ray contrast agents, at applying of water-soluble X-ray contrast agents in medical practice. New water-insoluble compounds of orthotantalates of rare-earth elements are offered as new X-ray contrast agents for endocavitary administration. The achieved results have shown the absence of general toxic effect on bodies of animals, high X-ray contrast properties in vitro and in vivo experiments. The investigations were performed on white nondescript mice, rats Wistar subtype and Chinchilla rabbits.
