What is Coronary Angiography?
Coronary angiography is a diagnostic procedure that uses X-rays and contrast dye to evaluate the coronary arteries for blockages or narrowing. It is a minimally invasive procedure that is performed in our cathlab by one of our interventional cardiologists.
What happens during the procedure?
During the procedure, a small tube called a catheter is inserted into a blood vessel in your groin or arm. The catheter is then guided to your heart using X-ray guidance. Once the catheter is in place, contrast dye is injected through the catheter, and X-rays are taken to assess the flow of blood through your coronary arteries.
how important is it?
Coronary angiography is an important diagnostic tool for evaluating coronary artery disease. It can help determine the location and severity of any blockages or narrowing in your coronary arteries. This information is essential for guiding treatment decisions, as it can help determine whether you require medication, PCI, or CABG.
