ABSTRACT: This prospective study concerning 100 subtraction angiographies of the lower limbs compared two iodine concentrations of iopamidol (300 and 370 mg l/l) and ioxaglate (320 and 350 mg l/l). More pain and movements disturbed the subtraction with iopamidol 370 in comparison with ionic contrast media (p < 0.005). The quality of the contrast was better with ioxaglate 350 (p = 0.05) than with the others. This one appears to be a good compromise for this type of examination.
