Cerebral Angiography is a specialized procedure that examines the blood vessels and their functioning in the brain. The test detects issues such as abnormal blood vessels, vasculitis, aneurysms, tears in the lining of an artery, blood cots, arteriosclerosis, tumors and disease called as atherosclerosis (plaque). The procedure is carried out with the help of a catheter, X- ray imaging and an injection.
Cerebral Angiogram gives a very fine, clear and detailed picture of the blood vessels. A person who has a history of bleeding problems, allergy to X-ray or kidney function problems must strictly inform to the doctor before the test.
