An angiogram is an X-ray of blood vessels that’s made by angiography. The procedure is frequently done to evaluate blockages in the arterial system with an injection of a contrast agent, iodine dye, used to detect the blockage.
An angiogram is typically done while a patient is sedated and takes anywhere from 20 minutes to several hours, depending on the patient’s individual circumstances. The procedure provides much needed information to vascular surgeons to best determine the patient’s situation and ideal treatment options.
“He was very professional, courteous and kept me informed throughout the whole procedure.”
