What is the difference between aortography and angiography?

Subset: Angiography is a study in which the blood vessels are visualized (e.g. Arteries of the leg or heart). An aortography is just a subset of that - visualizing the biggest artery in the body - the aorta. So, an aortography is an angiography but not vice versa. ...Read more

Aortography and coronary angiography.Differences?Could be both made at the same time?Risks? Syntomps:chest pain, low diuresis. All other exams ok

Aortography and coronary angiography.Differences?Could be both made at the same time?Risks? Syntomps:chest pain, low diuresis. All other exams ok

Differences: This is putting a dye to image the specific vessels. Aortography or course is the aorta and coronary are the blood vessels that go to the walls of the heart and yes they can be done a the same time, as long as the amount of dye used can be ok for the kidneys so a good kidney function necessary or else renal failure can ensue. That's one risk and the other is perforation of vessel, rare. ...Read more

Whats the difference between contrast ventriculography and radionuclide angiography?

Whats the difference between contrast ventriculography and radionuclide angiography?

X-ray vs radioactive: Contrast ventriculography uses x-ray contrast material, and rnvg uses a radioactive tracer. Acquisition time is shorter with x-ray compared to nuclear imaging. Both are great, but nuclear probably more accurate. ...Read more

What are the differences between contrast ventriculography and radionuclide angiography?

Imaging: Contrast ventriculography is using a contrast agent to image the ventricle(s) of the heart. It can be radiographic, ultrasonic or radionuclide imaging. Radionuclide angiography uses radioactive tracer to image the blood vessels and heart. ...Read more

What are the differences if any between cardiac catheterization and coronary angiography?

What are the differences if any between cardiac catheterization and coronary angiography?

Tubes +/- Dye to see: blood in blood vessels. Cath=tubes inserted into blood vessels; used to measure pressures &/or inject agents into blood, via the tube. Angiography (=blood picture) is injection of contrast agents into blood, during catheterization, so as to image, typically using X-Ray (a few seconds) or NMRI (few minutes) blood flow within blood vessels. Problem: does not show plaque-only narrowings due to clots. ...Read more
