Angiography

Angiography, also known as an angiogram, is an X-ray of the arteries and veins used to diagnose blockages and other blood vessel problems. Holy Name Medical Center’s Interventional Radiologists perform this exam by inserting a catheter into the artery with a very small incision in the skin and then injecting a contrast agent, an X-ray dye, to make the vessels visible on the X-ray.

Angiography is most often used to find blockages but it can also be used to determine whether the patient has had a stroke, bleeding in the brain, blood vessel malformations, or an aneurysm, which is a part of a blood vessel that bulges. Frequently, a blocked blood vessel can be treated at the same time by either an angioplasty, which involves putting a small balloon into the artery or vein, or a thrombolysis, when the blood clot is busted.
