Abstract

Gadopentetate dimeglumine diluted 1:1 with 0.9% normal saline was used as the radiographic contrast agent in two patients with azotemia who underwent peripheral vascular interventional procedures. The patients had no evidence of contrast material-induced renal failure after the procedures. The radiographic attenuation of the diluted gadopentetate dimeglumine was equivalent to diatrizoate meglumine diluted to 40 mg iodine per milliliter. Gadopentetate dimeglumine is an alternative radiographic contrast material for azotemic patients.
