Diagnostic Angiography in San Angelo

angiogram san angelo txDiagnostic angiography is used to find abnormalities of the blood vessels, such as narrowing and blockage caused by fatty deposits or blood clots, and aneurysms. It involves using a test known as an angiogram to get an image of what is happening with the bloodstream.

During the angiogram your treatment provider will inject a dye into a blood vessel using a very small, flexible tube called a catheter. The dye helps technicians and doctors locate abnormalities and determine the best treatment option.

At San Angelo Cardiovascular Center of Excellence, our experienced physicians incorporate innovative treatment options with the latest technology available in the country.
