Coronary Angiography and Left Ventriculography

​Coronary angiography, also known as cardiac catheterisation, is a procedure performed to visualise the coronary arteries which are blood vessels that supply blood to the heart. It is the gold standard to diagnose coronary artery disease.

The procedure involves the injection of a contrast material (commonly known as a dye) into the blood vessel through a small tube or catheter inserted into a large artery in the left or right groin or wrist. Digital images of the heart’s blood vessels will then be recorded using special X-ray cameras.
