Angiography is a diagnostic procedure by way of medical imaging where an X-Ray is taken of the heart to visualize the arteries, veins and the four chambers of the heart. Angiography requires the insertion of a catheter into the coronary or peripheral artery.
During Coronary Catheterization, X-Ray images of the blood in the coronary arteries are recorded. An intervention cardiologist guides a catheter through the large blood arteries till the tip of the catheter reaches the opening of the coronary arteries.
Catheters are made of material which has high radio opacity making allowing a clearer, blood compatible X-Ray dye to be selectively injected and mixed with the blood flowing in the artery. The cardiologist activates the equipment to apply a high X-Ray dose to record the diagnostic views which can be saved and studied later.
Hospitals may also use CT Angiography or Coronary Computed Tomography Angiography, as a non- invasive method to detect blockages in the coronary arteries. 64 slice CT Angio system is most commonly available in most hospitals.
Doctor is the best to select and decide who is appropriate to take CT Angiography. The usage of Coronary CTA is acceptable but there is some risk involved. Your Doctor will do careful selection of the patient to reduce any kind of risk involved.
· There are no remains of radiation in the body of the patient after an x-ray examination.
· Due to angiography, the need of surgery may get eliminated. If surgery is necessary then the whole procedure becomes accurate.
· X-rays generally do not have any side effects.
After the procedure, the patient is moved to the CCU for few hours of routine monitoring. The overall movements are kept minimum to avoid any bleeding from the puncture area. At the site of recovery, your heart rate and blood pressure are also checked after regular intervals along with any kind of possible bleeding.It is also possible that the puncture site area becomes tender or sore for few days. A small bruise may also appear.
(Please note this is a tentative plan and actual costs are based on reports shared. Final treatment plan and estimation will be provided after the patient has been evaluated.)
