Coronary Angiogram                 

What is an Angiogram? 

A Coronary Angiogram is a type of cardiac catheterization procedure. Catheterization refers to any procedure where a long, thin, flexible tube, also known as a catheter, is inserted into your body.

How is the procedure done? 

During a Coronary Angiogram, a dye is injected into the blood vessels of your heart. The special dye is visible on xray. An xray machine is then used to take a series of images, angiograms, to give a detailed look at the inside of your blood vessels. 

Why is a Coronary Angiogram indicated?

This procedure can help your doctor diagnose various heart conditions such as narrowed or blocked coronary arteries.
