ARTERIOGRAMS

A Useful Diagnostic Tool


Arteriograms are a useful diagnostic tool to create detailed imaging of the blood vessels, allowing physicians to identify issues and plan for future vascular surgery or other interventions.

Also known as angiograms, these tests are typically performed in a dedicated outpatient setting using sedation and local anesthesia. The physician introduces a catheter into a peripheral vessel, and advances it under x-ray guidance to map and image the blood vessels. In some cases, blockages can be treated within the same procedure by angioplasty (which is an inflation of a specialized balloon), or placing a metallic stent in the blood vessel while conducting the arteriogram.
