Angiogram 

Catheter angiography is a minimally invasive diagnostic procedure that can evaluate and treat conditions within the blood vessels by inserting a catheter into a targeted artery and delivering contrast material for clear imaging results. This procedure can effectively eliminate the need for surgery and provides the most accurate visualization of targeted blood vessels to ensure proper functioning or detect any problems in their early stages.

 

A catheter angiogram may be performed to evaluate blood vessels within the lower extremities in order to:

 

  • Detect atherosclerosis

  • Provide image guidance for stent implantation

 

During the catheter angiogram procedure, an IV line is inserted into the arm, into which a small dose of sedative may be administered to relieve anxiety and any pain associated with this procedure. The catheter is then inserted under local anesthesia into the groin. The doctor guides the catheter to the targeted area under imaging guidance and then injects a contrast dye into the area before a set of X-rays are taken. The catheter is then gently removed with no stitches needed to close the incision.
