Angiography or arteriography is a medical imaging technique used to
visualize the inside, or lumen, of blood vessels and organs of the
body, with particular interest in the arteries, veins and the heart
chambers. This is traditionally done by injecting a radio-opaque
contrast agent into the blood vessel and imaging using X-ray based
techniques such as fluoroscopy. The word itself comes from the
Greek words angeion, "vessel," and graphein, "to write or record."
The film or image of the blood vessels is called an angiograph, or
more commonly, an angiogram. Although the term angiography is
strictly defined as based on projectional radiography, the term has
been applied to newer vascular imaging techniques such as CT
angiography and MR angiography.
