Coronary Angiogram (CAG)

    
   During a coronary angiogram procedure, a small catheter is inserted through the skin into an artery at the arm or groin, slowly advancing to the opening of the coronary arteries. A solution containing iodine is injected into each coronary artery, where visualization can be observed from an x-ray. Angiographic images accurately reveal the extent and severity of all coronary artery blockages, the strength of heart muscles and performance of the cardiac valves.
Who should be tested?
   Patients who suspect to have coronary artery blockages or show symptoms of chest pain, frequent drowsiness or abnormal results from exercise stress test or echocardiogram.
Preparation
  • Do not eat or drink for at least 6 hours prior the test.
  • Stop taking anticoagulant drugs or other medication as advised by the doctor.
