What would be a reason to get a cerebral angiogram? I had high blood pressure could this be why? What are other reasons.

In brief: Stenosis/aneurysm
A cerebral (brain) angiogram is a specific test examing the arteries of the brain.
An angiogram is done when there is suspicion of a 'brain aneurysm' --have you had new onset of severe headaches? Another reason for cerebral angiogram is to look for 'stenosis' (narrowing) of the arteries which can cause tia's (mini-strokes) --have you had reversible weakness, numbness or speech difficulty. -not bp.
