Diagnostic Peripheral Angiography In Atlanta

Peripheral angiography is similar to cardiac catheterization in that similar X-ray equipment and dye are used. However, this test is used to determine the presence of blockages in arteries in other parts of the body, such as in the neck, legs or aorta.

If a significant blockage in the peripheral arteries is found, one can consider angioplasty (opening the blockage using a balloon), stenting (inserting a metal tube in the site of blockage) or bypass surgery.
