what is the difference between angiogram and angiography?

Angiogram: Angiograms and angioplasty are defined when you break down the words into their respective suffixes and prefixes. The prefix ‘angio’ relates to a blood vessel or lymph vessel. The suffix ‘gram’ is the analysis or recording of something, and ‘plasty’ is the repair and restoration of something.

Verb versus noun: Angiography is the process of performing an x-ray picture (or an image) of a blood vessel by injecting the vessel with an opaque dye. Th dye often contains iodine. An angiogram is the picture of the blood vessel that was taken while performing angiography.
