arteriography

Arteriography is an imaging technique for examining blood vessels. A dye opaque to X-rays, called contrast material or radiopaque, is injected into the patient's bloodstream and the arteries are revealed in an X-ray photograph. The technique is particularly useful in detecting atherosclerosis.

 

Types of arteriography include:

 

  • Aortography (Aortic angiography)
  • Cerebral angiography
  • Coronary angiography
  • Extremity arteriography
  • Fluorescein angiography
  • Lymphangiogram
  • Pulmonary angiography
