Arteriogram or Angiogram


An Arteriogram or Angiogram is an x-ray examination of the inside of your blood vessels or arteries. During your Arteriogram or Angiogram, we’ll place a small tube called a catheter into a blood vessel in your groin or arm, inject x-ray dye or contrast into the catheter, and take pictures of the blood vessels of interest. A specially trained doctor, known as an interventional radiologist, will perform this procedure.
