Peripheral Angiography

Definition

Peripheral angiography is an outpatient diagnostic study for patients who may have blocked blood vessels in their legs and lower body. Utilizing an iodine-based dye that is injected to make arteries (which aren't detectable by X-rays) visible when mixed with blood, doctors can have a "map" of a patient's blood vessels to determine if there's disease or blockage and where the problem is located.
