In brief: CT Scan+Angiography
Ct is for cat scan=computerized axial tomography; spinning an x-ray tube ; detectors (opposite side) around an axis to check radiodensity of whatever is within the circle, then a computer uses the data to calculate "slice" images of what is probably within the circle.
If an injected x-ray dye is in the blood during the ct imaging, then the dye/blood column(s) within the circle is also calculated.
