In brief: Diagnostic Test

An angiogram is an invasive diagnostic test, perfomed in a catheterization laboratory using fluoroscopy (the x-ray) and an injected contrast dye.
It is possible to perform angiograms for different parts of the body, such as the left and/or right heart, the aorta, selective veins such as the subclavian, the renal artery and peripheral angiograms (the limbs) as well.
