Diagnostic Angiography in Mission, Texas
Diagnostic angiography is used to find abnormalities of the blood vessels, such as narrowing and blockage caused by fatty deposits or blood clots, and aneurysms. It involves using a test known as an angiogram to get an image of what is happening with your bloodstream.
During the angiogram your treatment provider will inject a dye into a blood vessel using a very small, flexible tube called a catheter. The dye helps technicians and doctors locate abnormalities and determine the best treatment option.
At Mission Vascular Center of Excellence, our experienced physicians incorporate innovative treatment options with the latest technology available in the country.
