Brief Summary:
The main purpose of this study is to compare the incidence of contrast induced nephrotoxicity following the administration of Isovue or Visipaque in patients with moderate to severe renal insufficiency undergoing cardiac angiography. Serum creatinine will be measured before and up to 48-72 hours after the administration of the contrast agent to evaluate renal function.
