Angiography offers an advanced diagnosis and treatment for patients with disorders that affect the blood vessels and allows direct visualization of those structures. Radiographic contrast dye is injected through a thin, flexible catheter into the blood vessel, allowing the technician to view problematic areas. This diagnostic procedure is performed on an outpatient basis, using a light sedation to promote relaxation. The procedure typically takes 6-8 hours to complete.
