Definition

An angiogram is a special x-ray examination of blood vessels. Normally, blood vessels do not show up on ordinary x-rays. However, by injecting a special dye, called contrast medium, into an artery through a special fine plastic tube called a catheter, and taking x-rays immediately afterwards, detailed images of arteries and veins can be produced.
