An angiogram is a screening procedure that can detect the locations of blockages in the heart. It is considered the gold standard for evaluating blockages in the arterial system. The detection is performed by using real time images, taken after the injection of a contrast agent (iodine dye). The procedure provides information that helps your Cardiologist determine the best course for diagnosis and treatment.
Angiograms are typically performed while the patient is sedated. The procedure may last for an average of 15-20 minutes or up to an hour, depending on the level of complications that are unique to each patient.
The different types of Angiograms include Coronary Angiogram, Cerebral Angiogram, Head & Neck Angiogram, Peripheral Angiogram and Renal Angiogram.
