Allergy to iodine-containing contrast agents is the main contraindication for angiographic examinations of patients. This paper reviews the works of Russian and foreign specialists describing an experience gained with the use of magnetic resonance gadolinium-containing agents possessing radioabsorption properties for digital subtraction angiography and CT, angiography. The authors provide a comparative evaluation of the efficacy of the use of magnetic resonance contrast agents with varying gadolinium concentration. The conclusion is drawn about the comparable diagnostic accuracy of angiograms obtained with the aid of nonionic iodinated contrast agents and monomolar gadolinium-containing contrast agents (Gadovist 1.0).

KEY WORDS: angiography and CT angiography using gadolinium-containing contrast agents, magnetic resonance agents with contrast properties, Gadobutrol, Gadovist 1.0.
