Coronary Angiography

Coronary Angiography, sometimes referred to as Cardiac Diagnostic Cathetherization, Heart Angiography or Coronary Angiogram, is a diagnostic procedure that helps to diagnoze heart conditions by visualizing plaques (changes) in your cardiac system. Coronary Angiography is performed by the team of cardiologists. During the procedure, dye and X-ray imaging are used to see the inside of the heart vessels. Catheterization (which involves placing a catheter - a small tube - into your blood vessel, usually accessed in the arm, groin or neck) is used to provide the dye into the coronary arteries. You will stay awake during the procedure, and, in the majority of cases, the procedure will be completely painless.
