One comparative trial of iso-osmolality (iodixanol) versus low-osmolality (iohexol) CM in patients with both diabetes and renal insufficiency showed a lower incidence of CIN with the use of the iso-osmolality CM [8]. However, a systematic review of available data in high-risk patients from prospective trials involving low- and iso-osmolality CM does not support a benefit of iso-osmolality CM over all other low-osmolality CM [9]. In particular, the data show comparable rates of CIN with the use of iodixanol and iopamidol, another nonionic monomer contrast agent.

Intraarterial versus intravenous, (3) a second CM study within 72 h, and (4) the specific CM used. Since these are potentially modifiable factors, it is important to consider each factor when a high-risk patient has been identified. The risk of CIN is proportional to the volume of contrast administered, with no clear threshold dose [4]. There is an interaction with the patient’s level of renal function. A smaller volume of contrast can cause CIN as the level of renal function (GFR) falls. This has led to the development of a recommended maximum volume of contrast based upon serum creatinine although this has not been extensively validated [5].
