In brief: Not true necessarily
I do angiograms almost on a daily basis.
In the distant past, the contrast we used made the heart stop for a couple of seconds or would slow it down in some people (immediately after the injection); but that is a thing of the past anymore.

In brief: Angiogram
It usually doesn't. Unless related to the sedation.
