Combining the X-ray with a special dye, the vessels are outlined and can be seen.

This test allow your doctor to check potential blockages in the coronary arteries or in other arteries or veins.

A coronary angiogram gives a better understanding of the actual state of your heart and how well is working or if something needs to be done. The same applies to other areas of the body.
