Angiography is performed using:
- X-rays with catheters
- Computed Tomography (CT Scan)
- Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
During CT Angiography, an iodine-rich contrast material (dye) is usually injected into a small catheter and placed in the vein of your arm. We then perform a CT scan while the contrast dye flows through the blood vessels and various organs of the body.
After scanning, the images are processed using a special computer and reviewed in different planes and projections by the radiologist.
