Coronary Angiogram is a diagnostic procedure performed to identify any narrowing or block in the arteries that supply blood to the heart. Coronary Angiogram is done by injecting a specific kind of dye to the blood vessels, the dye is observable by taking a continuous X-ray video. The images from X-ray are analysed to identify blockage or narrowing present in blood vessels carrying blood to the heart.
