Angiography is a medical imaging technique used to visualize blood vessels in various parts of the body. It is typically performed using a special dye (contrast material) that is injected into the bloodstream through a catheter, followed by X-ray imaging to produce detailed images of the blood vessels. This procedure can help diagnose a variety of medical conditions, such as blockages or narrowing of blood vessels, aneurysms, or tumors.
There are different types of angiography procedures that are tailored to specific parts of the body. For example, a coronary angiography is used to visualize the blood vessels of the heart, while a cerebral angiography is used to visualize the blood vessels of the brain. An angiography can also be performed on the legs, lungs, and kidneys.
Angiography is typically performed in a hospital or specialized clinic, under the supervision of a trained medical team. The procedure involves some risks, such as allergic reactions to the contrast material or damage to blood vessels from the catheter insertion. However, these risks are generally low and the benefits of the procedure usually outweigh the risks. Patients may need to follow specific instructions before the procedure, such as fasting or stopping certain medications. After the procedure, patients may need to rest for a period of time and avoid certain activities until the catheter insertion site has healed.
