ATC code V08

ATC code V08 Contrast media is a therapeutic subgroup of the Anatomical Therapeutic Chemical Classification System, a system of alphanumeric codes developed by the WHO for the classification of drugs and other medical products. Subgroup V08 is part of the anatomical group V Various.[1]

Codes for veterinary use (ATCvet codes) can be created by placing the letter Q in front of the human ATC code: for example, QV08.[2]

National issues of the ATC classification may include additional codes not present in this list, which follows the WHO version.
