Angiography

The arteries that supply blood to the heart muscle are called coronary arteries. In healthy hearts, blood flows freely to and from the heart and throughout the body. Sometimes these arteries are narrowed or blocked prohibiting proper blood flow. A Coronary Angiogram is a procedure that uses X-ray imaging to look at your heart’s blood vessels. For your Angiogram, you will be taken to our onsite Cardiac Catheterization Lab where a small catheter will be inserted into your heart through an artery or a vein. Dye is injected to allow the doctor to see the blood flow in your heart and coronary arteries, and X-rays pictures will be taken. The results of your Angiogram will assist your cardiologist in diagnosis and prevention of a number of concerns.
