Coronary Angiography

Book Now

Coronary Angiography Procedure is recommended when your doctor feels you are at risk of a heart attack. It involves taking an X-Ray by injecting contrast dye into your arteries and watching on screen how the blood flows. The resulting images obtained are termed Coronary angiograms.

 

During Coronary Angiography, a fine tubing is passed through a site over the wrist or groin through the main artery (Aorta) to reach the coronary ostium, from where radiocontrast material (dye) is injected to visualise the coronary arteries and look for blockage. The procedure is usually done under local anaesthesia so the site area is numbed and the patient doesn’t feel pain.

 

Coronary Angiography is an OPD procedure, and the patient can return home on the same day in a few hours.
