What Is a Coronary Angiography?
It is a procedure that uses X-ray imaging (Cath lab) to see your heart’s blood vessels. This test is done to see if there’s a restriction/blockage in blood flow going to the heart. An angiogram can help your doctor see if you need treatment such as angioplasty or stent, coronary artery bypass surgery (CABG) or medical therapy. Procedures aren’t necessary for all blockages.
