In brief: Vascular anatomy
Angiograms are the gold standard for defining the vascular anatomy of the brain, but i can't tell you why you need one.
They will demonstrate intracranial atherosclerosis, aneurysms, feeding and draining vessels to an arteriovenous malformation, vascular feeding vessels to a tumor, vascular steal phenomemon and many other processes. When the dye is injected, you may get a warm sensation.
