Abdominal Angiogram

PERIPHERAL-ARTERY-DISEASE.jpg

Your doctor will thread a small, hollow tube, called a catheter, through the arteries suspected of having the narrowing or blockage. The tube will be hooked to a injector that injects X-ray dye. 

Once the X-ray pictures show where the blockages are, your doctor will be able to tell the best way to open the blocked blood vessels. This should stop the pain and reduce the risk of blood clots.
