An angiogram is a test that uses a special type of X-ray, fluoroscopy, to take images of the blood flow in arteries or veins. It can detect blood flow problems such as aneurysm or blockage, can reveal the extent of atherosclerosis, and show blood flow to a tumour.
In coronary angiography a cardiologist makes use of contrast dyes and X-rays that help to find out blockage in a coronary artery. Coronary arteries are types of arteries that are found in the cardiac region. Coronary angiography is carried out to detect presence of arterial plaque or blockages in the coronary arteries. It is usually done along with cardiac catheterization.
