Angiography SurgeryDr. Mangesh Danej
This test is similar to a traditional coronary angiogramthat uses X-rays but the dye is injected into a small vein in your arm rather than an artery in your groin. A CT coronary angiogram is not as good as a traditional coronary angiogram at detecting narrowing of small coronary arteries.
Coronary angiography is a specialized X-ray test to find out detailed information about your heart (coronary) arteries. It is mainly used if you have angina, to assess which if any of the arteries are blocked, and how severely the arteries are blocked. It involves a procedure called catheterization. Coronary angiography is a special X-ray of the heart (coronary) arteries. Coronary arteries do not show up on a plain X-ray. With coronary angiography, a dye is injected down the coronary arteries.
