The physical and pharmacological properties of gadolinium enable its chelates to be used as a contrast medium in digital subtraction angiography. We report the use of gadodiamide, a low-osmolar nonionic gadolinium chelate, for selective angiography in a patient with known sensitivity to iodinated contrast medium. No adverse effects were encountered during or after injection. Contrary to a single previous report of the use of these agents in cerebral angiography, contrast in the angiogram was not particularly good, especially in the distal circulation, but the angiogram was diagnostic.
