An angiogram works by taking an X-ray of the arteries supplying blood to the heart and other major arteries to organs and upper and lower limbs to discover any narrowing or blocking.
It can usually be performed as a day procedure, allowing you to recover in the comfort of your own home. Our caregivers are available to help you understand the procedure and answer any questions you may have.
We offer access to the latest angiography technology, as well as leading medical experts including cardiologists, vascular surgeons, radiologists and other heart specialists.
An angiogram involves inserting a small, soft plastic catheter (tube) into an artery in your leg or wrist. The catheter is then guided to the area your cardiologist or vascular surgeon needs to view.
A small amount of dye is inserted into the catheter, which makes your blood vessels visible on an X-ray. A local anaesthetic is used, so there may be some slight discomfort but the procedure should not be painful.
Our angiography services provide:
- access to leading medical practitioners including radiologists, cardiologists, vascular surgeons and other heart specialists
- state-of-the-art facilities
- day surgery to allow you to recover in the comfort of your home.
