Angiography and arteriography is been referred to the process of the medical imaging technique that is used to visualize interior organs of body. Any particular interest is also given to arteries, veins as well as heart chambers during angiography.
Process of the angiography is divided in a lot of types such as xray study blood vessels, coronary angiography, cerebral angiography, kidney angiography, pulmonary angiography, according to the patients’ requirement. The coronary angiography is most common angiography and it is done to visualize blood in coronary arteries. In this kind of the angiography long, thin, the flexible tube nmed catheter is been used to administer x-ray contrast agent at desired area. Also ,it is after that, threaded in an artery in groin and forearm. Tip is after that, advanced through arterial system in one of bodies’ 2 major coronary arteries.
The expert on procedure of the angiography will visualize the x-ray images of transient radiocontrast distribution in blood. He or she will determine size of artery openings. The cerebral angiography is generally used to detect vascular abnormalities of brain such as arteriovenous malformations & aneurysms. Few doctors perform the cerebral angiography is needed to confirm the brain death. In the same way, the pulmonary angiography refers to x-ray study of the blood vessels, which is been supplied to lungs and it is used to find blood clot) in blood vessels.
The kidney angiography known as the renal angiography, on other hand generally refers to process where expert look at arteries, which supply the blood to kidneys. Kidney angiography is generally done for evaluating the blood flow to kidneys, detect blockages or narrowing in kidney arteries, and determine severity of blockage for the proper diagnosis, identify possible cause for the high blood pressure & finally, identify possible cause for the poor kidney function.
