Is ct angiography good or bad??

A tool

Computerized_axial_tomography
CT angiography is a useful tool when used where needed ( to diagnose a blood clot in the lung, for example). It can cause harm if there is a reaction to the contrast or if rather kidneys are fragile, so each time it is ordered the risks should be weighed against the information to be gained.

Dr. Dan E. Fisher answered:

Is a coronary angiography dangerous?

Yes.

Heart
Not having coronary angiography when necessary is also dangerous. Every procedure has associated risks and benefits. Not doing a procedure has risks and benefits as well. Create a 2X2 square with risks / benefits at top and procedure / no procedure on the side. This will help you and your doctor identify and evaluate the options.

Do i need coronary angiography? What for?

Evaluate your artery

Heart
The reason for angiography is to best evaluate the anatomy of your coronary arteries. The reasons that you may need to evaluate the anatomy of your arteries is to know why you have chest pain, why you have heart failure or irregular heart rhythm, or why you have an abnormal stress test. There are multiple reasons why an angiogram could be ordered. This should be discussed with your doctor.

Are angiogram and angiography the same thing?

No

Angiography
Technically no. An angiogram is the image taken when the artery is injected with dye and imaged under X-rays. Angiography is the procedure used to obtain an angiogram. They are often used interchangeably in the vernacular.
