Spinal Arteriography/Angiography

A spinal angiogram or arteriogram is a diagnostic procedure performed under light sedation that offers precise evaluation of the blood vessels around the spinal cord. To take pictures of the blood vessels, the physician inserts a catheter into the femoral (leg) artery and carefully advances it to the targeted blood vessels under the guidance of low dose x-rays. Contrast dye is injected through the catheter into each target blood vessel to create a diagnostic image.

Spinal angiography helps diagnose spinal cord vascular malformations spinal arteriovenous malformations and other conditions.
