Drug: MultiHance
Drug: Magnevist
Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
Official Title: A Phase IIIB, Double-Blind, Multi-Center, Randomized, Cross-Over Study to Compare 0.1 Mmol/kg of Multihance With 0.1 Mmol/kg of Magnevist for Contrast-Enhanced Magnetic Resonance Angiography(CE-MRA) of Peripheral Arteries

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Assessment of global paired diagnostic preference of the two MRA exams [ Time Frame: Post dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To compare the two different products for signal intensity enhancement; average quality of visualization; technical failure rate; to assess inter-reader agreement in terms of average quality of visualization [ Time Frame: post dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
