ANGIOGRAPHY

Written by

Radiography of blood vessels made visible by injecting into them a radio-opaque substance. In the case of arteries this is known as arteriography; the corresponding term for veins being venography or phlebography. This procedure demonstrates whether there is any narrowing or ballooning of the lumen of the vessel, changes usually caused by disease or injury.
