Angiogram: A Clear Picture of Your Heart's Blood Vessels

At Subang Jaya Medical Centre's Heart, Vascular, and Thoracic Department, we offer a comprehensive range of treatments and procedures to address various heart conditions. One of the key procedures we perform is an Angiogram, also known as a Coronary Angiogram. This diagnostic test allows our cardiologists to visualise the blood vessels in your heart and detect any blockages or narrowing that affect blood flow.

During an Angiogram, a contrast dye is injected into your bloodstream through a thin tube called a catheter inserted into a blood vessel, usually in your groin or wrist. X-ray images are then taken as the dye flows through your coronary arteries, providing a clear visualisation of your heart's blood vessels and highlighting any areas of concern.


The key aspects of an Angiogram include:

1. Evaluating Coronary Artery Disease: Angiography helps assess the presence and severity of coronary artery disease (CAD), a condition characterised by plaque build-up in the arteries that supply blood to your heart. It allows our cardiologists to identify blockages or narrowing in the coronary arteries and determine the most appropriate treatment approach.

2. Guiding Treatment Decisions: Angiography is crucial in guiding treatment decisions for patients with CAD. Depending on the findings, our cardiologists may recommend further interventions such as angioplasty, stent insertion, or coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) to restore blood flow to the heart and alleviate symptoms.

3. Minimally Invasive Procedure: While Angiogram is considered invasive, it is minimally invasive compared to open-heart surgery. The catheter insertion site is small, and the procedure is generally well-tolerated, with a low risk of complications.

The Resting ECG is a quick and painless procedure, typically taking only a few minutes to complete. Our experienced healthcare professionals will interpret the results and provide you with a comprehensive analysis of your heart's electrical activity.
