Diagnostic Angiography in Opelousas
The latest advancements in angiography help our medical experts develop completely customized treatment plans. Diagnostic angiography is used to find abnormalities of the blood vessels, such as narrowing and blockage caused by fatty deposits or blood clots, and aneurysms. It involves using a test known as an angiogram to get an image of what is happening with the bloodstream.
During the angiogram your treatment provider will inject a dye into a blood vessel using a very small, flexible tube called a catheter. The dye allows our physicians to locate even the smallest abnormalities and determine the best treatment options tailored to your specific needs.
At Louisiana Cardiovascular & Nephrology Center of Excellence, our experienced physicians incorporate innovative treatment options with the latest technology available in the country.
