To compare image quality and diagnostic accuracy of 0.5 molar and 1.0 molar in contrast-enhanced run off MRA of the lower extremities in 74 patients. Application of a single dose gadobenate dimeglumine and a double dose gadobutrol in contrast-enhanced run off MRA of the lower extremities did not show any significant differences in image quality and diagnostic accuracy. Gadolinium dose could be reduced without a loss of image quality or diagnostic accuracy by the application of a single dose of gadobenate dimeglumine for CE run off MRA of the lower extremities.
