In brief: To find blockages
It is a procedure that images the arteries of the heart by injecting dye into them, to find blockages in the vessels.
It is done if someone has symptoms such as chest pain that may be due to poor blood flow. Technically, an angiogram is just the diagnostic study, i.e. The images. If a blockage exists, special catheters can be used at the same time to open it with balloons and stents.
