In brief: Artery blockages

Usually, angiography is done to look for problems in blood supply to the heart.
Blockage in the coronary arteries could lead to a heart attack. If a blockage is found, treatment such as angioplasty, stent placement, or even surgery for coronary artery bypass could be recommended. Symptoms such as chest pain (angina) on exertion usually call for a stress test, and maybe angiography.
