Coronary Angiography is carried out using the Multislice CT, the latest examination appliance in radiology. No preparation is necessary and it takes just 10 SECONDS. This method is much quicker and easier compared to the classical catheter angiography. It is carried out by introducing a contrast material via the arm. After the examination, there is no longer any need to stay in the hospital.
As with every organ, the heart is supplied with blood via small blood vessels which lead out from the main artery (via the Coronary Arteries). As you get older, the walls of the blood vessels become furred, known as atherosclerosis, which causes the tissue which they support to become damaged (infarction or heart attack). Having prior knowledge of these plaques, which cause congestion in the blood vessels, can mean it can be averted before the congestion is fully formed and heart attack can be prevented.
