Peripheral angiography is a technique used to capture images of peripheral arteries. These arteries do not normally show up on normal X-rays, which is why a contrast dye is used while performing the X-ray. The contrast dye is injected into the blood stream via a catheter. Angiograms are taken after the contrast dye is released. Peripheral angiography indications include plaque build-up inside the peripheral arteries along with detection of peripheral vascular disease(PVD). Depending upon the complexity of the examination, the procedure might take 30 minutes to 2 hours.
We, at Care Hospitals combine the specialized skills of our staff with the updated technology to perform even the most technically challenging procedures with ease. Here, the peripheral angiography technique is performed by trained technicians.
