In brief: Diagnostic Test
A cardiac catheterization or coronary angiogram is a diagnostic test to evaluate the state coronary arteries, in particular looking for stenoses, ejection fraction, pressures and/or sometimes pulmonary hypertension via a right heart cath.
It is usually a follow up to a complete cardiac physical and, usually, other diagnostic tests such as an ekg, echo, mps and perhaps even a ccta.
