What is cerebral or carotid angiography?

With this method, the condition of the patient's cerebral arteries and the percentage of their stenosis can be so well-determined, that the doctor can choose the type of treatment for patient’s condition with confidence. It is a cost reductive diagnostic way, which reduces complications after surgery. With this method, doctors can assure a shorter hospitalization for the problem. Carotid angiography is still considered the gold standard for carotid artery imaging. Angiography is not recommended for people who has allergy to contrast agents, active infections, pregnancy, kidney and liver dysfunction, Refractory Arrhythmia and uncontrolled high blood pressure.

• People with narrowed cerebral arteries. • Any patients with a problem of cerebral arteries that doctors will need an exact diagnosis test.

The medical team asks about medical history and allergies. They take some special tests and the doctor will adjust the medicines such as insulin. Patients should not eat or drink from the midnight before the procedure. Anticoagulants such as warfarin will be discontinued 2 to 3 hours before the test.
