GETTING A CLOSER LOOK
If you’ve found yourself helpless due to the symptoms of vascular conditions that lead to the development of arterial plaque, or irregularities, such as aneurysms, you should consider consulting your interventional radiologist to undergo an angiography. In an angiography, your interventional radiologist will be able to get a better look at the condition causing discomfort or blockage.
DEFINING AN ANIoGRAPHY
Utilizing a catheter to allow access to blood vessels, the tube is inserted to gain high-quality images of the blockage In order to get the images to resonate, an X-ray contrast agent is used so the blood vessels, as well as the blockage, can be seen. One of the main benefits of having an angiography is that it will allow your doctor to plan for management of your symptoms.
A LOOK INTO NUMEROUS CONDITIONS
Angiography can be used to identify many types of conditions, including but not limited to:
- Narrowing of arteries in the legs, caused by atherosclerotic disease
- Instances of kidney disease or failure
