Further study details as provided by GE Healthcare:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Subjects Experiencing Discomfort When Undergoing Peripheral Arteriography [ Time Frame: Within 10 minutes post contrast administration. ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    The number of subjects experiencing overall discomfort, heat or pain between Iodixanol and Iopamidol during the diagnostic phase of imaging.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Comparison of Overall Image Quality Between Iodixanol and Iopamidol in Patients Undergoing Peripheral Arteriography. [ Time Frame: Within 10 minutes post contrast administration. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Overall Image Quality rated as 'Excellent, Adequate or Poor' by radiologists blinded to the contrast administration.
