Coronary Angiography

Coronary Angiography is a diagnostic procedure used to evaluate the health of your heart’s blood vessels, particularly the coronary arteries. These arteries supply oxygen-rich blood to the heart muscle, and any blockages or narrowing can lead to various cardiovascular conditions. Coronary Angiography allows doctors to visualize the coronary arteries and identify any abnormalities or blockages that may be present.

During the procedure, a thin, flexible tube called a catheter is inserted into a blood vessel, usually in the groin or wrist, and carefully threaded up to the coronary arteries. A contrast dye is then injected through the catheter, which helps highlight the blood vessels on X-ray images. These images, known as angiograms, allow the cardiologist to examine the arteries for any signs of disease, such as plaque build-up or narrowing.

Coronary Angiography is typically performed to -

  • Diagnose coronary artery disease (CAD): By visualizing the coronary arteries, doctors can assess the degree of blockage or narrowing and determine the appropriate treatment plan.
  • Evaluate chest pain or discomfort: If a patient experiences chest pain, Coronary Angiography can help identify the underlying cause, such as blocked arteries.
  • Assess the need for further intervention: In cases where blockages are identified, Coronary Angiography helps guide treatment decisions, such as angioplasty, stent placement, or coronary artery bypass surgery.
