Coronary Angiography – An Infographic in urdu

A coronary Angiography is also known as cardiac catheterization. This test uses dye and fluroscope (similar to an x-ray machine) to look inside your coronary arteries. Its purpose is to detect heart problems. Blood vessels do not show clearly on a normal x-ray, so special dye needs to be injected into your blood first. This highlights your blood vessels, allowing your doctor to see any problems. The x-ray images created during angiography are called angiograms.

Why angiography is carried out?

Angiography is used to check the health of your blood vessels and how blood flows through them. It can help to diagnose or investigate several problems affecting blood vessels, including:

  1. Atherosclerosis - narrowing of the arteries, which could mean you're at risk of having a stroke or heart attack.
  2. Peripheral Artery Disease - reduced blood supply to the leg muscles. 
  3. A Brain Aneurysm - a bulge in a blood vessel in your brain
  4. Angina - chest pain caused by reduced blood flow to the heart muscles
  5. Blood clots or Pulmonary Embolism - a blockage in the artery supplying your lungs
  6. A blockage in the blood supply to your kidneys

Angiography may also be used to help plan treatment for some of these diseases. Your test will be performed at Bilal Hospital's Cath Lab. It may take around 15 to 30 minutes or more.  At most you may have to stay at hospital for up to 6 hours. Coronary angiography is a safe test that is routinely performed to detect problems. But in case you have any doubts about it, please discuss it with the consultant cardiologist before agreeing to have the test.
