What is Angiography?

An angiogram is an X-ray test that uses a special dye and camera (fluoroscopy) to take pictures of the blood flow in an artery or a vein.

What is coronary Angiography?

Coronary angiograms look at the arteries of the heart.
During an angiogram, a thin tube called a catheter is placed into a blood vessel in the groin (femoral artery) or just above the wrist (radial artery). The catheter is guided to the area to be studied. Then an iodine dye (contrast material) is injected into the vessel to make the area show clearly on the X-ray pictures.
The angiogram pictures are stored as digital pictures in a CD/Computer.

Why is a Coronary Angiogram done?

A coronary angiogram is done to detect blockages in the arteries of your heart. THese can then be addressed by various treatment modalities like medicines, stenting or bypass surgery.

Should I get a second opinion before getting a Coronary Angiogram?

It is a good practice to get a second opinion if you do not definite symptoms suggestive of a cardiac disease. Please do meet a qualified specialist for your second opinion.
