Angiography is a type of X-ray used to check blood vessels. It is very difficult to see blood vessels on a normal X-ray. In this procedure, a special solution is injected into the blood to visualize the blood vessels.

Blood vessels are not visible on a normal X-ray, so a special dye called a contrast agent must be injected into your blood first.

This highlights your blood vessels, allowing your doctor to see any problems.

There are several different types of angiography, depending on which part of the body is being looked at. Common types of angiography are coronary angiography, cerebral angiography, pulmonary angiography, and renal angiography.

In this article, we will answer the question, “What is angiography” We will also have a look at Ekol International Hospital Angiography machines and expert team. In the last part, you can read about the services offered by angiography.


What is Angiography?

Angiography uses X-rays to examine blood vessels. The images produced by this method are called angiograms. Angiograms are commonly conducted in hospitals, often with patients under local anesthesia. The duration of the procedure can vary significantly, ranging from 20 minutes to several hours, contingent upon the test's complexity and the amount of contrast needed.

If a patient has circulatory problems, the doctor may decide to have the patient undergo angiography to reveal the causes.

Angiography serves as a crucial diagnostic tool in identifying significant arterial ailments that may contribute to serious health conditions like stroke, heart attack, gangrene, and organ failure. The visual data obtained through coronary angiography is invaluable in assisting medical professionals with devising appropriate treatment strategies for patients experiencing angina and heart attack episodes.
