Understanding Angiography Procedure

Angiography is a diagnostic procedure used to confirm or rule out an abnormality like narrowing (stenosis) or blockages (occlusions) of blood vessels in any part of the blood circulatory system or in organs.

Angiography basically examines the blood vessels and the flow of blood through them in the body. The radiographic technique can be simply called x-ray of blood vessels. The terms angiogram or arteriogram are also used for the procedure.

During an angiography the radiologist inserts a radiopaque substance or the contrast medium (iodine) through a catheter (a thin tube) into a vein in the arm to make the blood vessels visible on the x-ray or fluoroscopic images.
Sometimes, based on medical case, interventional radiologist may treat a blocked artery during angiography through angiogplasty technique.

Angiography procedure is painless as done under general anesthesia. It may take about an hour but you will be kept in observation for about six hours in the hospital. After the procedure, a rest of two to three days would be advised.
You will get angiography reports the same day. The reports help the doctor to plan the further course of treatment.

Types of angiography (based on part of body to be examined)

• Cerebral angiography (head and neck)
• Coronary angiography (heart)
• Pulmonary angiography (lungs)
• Renal angiography (kidneys)
• Extremity angiography (arms and legs)

Purpose of angiography

• To identify blocking or narrowing of arteries (atherosclerosis)
• To diagnose any heart disease in case of heart attack or angina
• To detect cerebral vascular disease, such as stroke or bleeding in the brain
• To assess kidney function
• To detect cysts or tumors in kidney
• To map renal anatomy in transplant donors
• To examine the blood flow in the retina of eye
• To get a vascular plan of the organ before a surgery like that of heart or brain etc.
• To detect any blood vessel injury after an accident
• To detect blood clots
• To locate internal bleeding

Note (for foreign patients):

Besides South Asian countries (Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka), every year, India gets thousands of medical tourists from African countries- Nigeria, Kenya, Ethiopia, Sudan, Uganda, Ghana, Somalia,Gambia etc and Middle Eastern countries like Iraq, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Oman, UAE, Yemen etc. Hence, if you are a citizen of any of these countries, there is good likelihood that you will be meeting some fellow citizens or same language speakers in the major hospitals in India. Almost all the top hospitals have translators for people of these region. Our patient support team is also well placed to assist you.
