Coronary Arteriography

Author: Webmaster / August 8, 2016 / Categories:

A medical procedure used to assess the heart and any cardiovascular complications. During coronary arteriography, a catheter (a long tube) is threaded through the veins and blood vessels to the heart. Once in the heart region, a dye will be injected into the arteries so that the heart, arteries and flow activity can be seen on an x-ray.

A coronary arteriography can be used to run diagnostic tests and measurements of the heart. X-ray images specifically can be used to detect diseases in the arteries or complications with blood flow to the heart.
