In brief: Evaluate your artery

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.
