In brief: UNCOMMON

An angiogram is a 'map of the arteries'.
It may be needed in a young person when a congential narrow (or blocked) artery is suspected or in a condition called a.V.M. (arterio-venous malformation) which resembles 'tangled' blood vessels. Both these conditions may need treatment/surgery/embolization. These conditions are rare & so are angiograms in <35 yo.
