Arteriogram

An arteriogram is an x-ray examination to delineate the arterial circulation. Any artery in the body may be viewed using a catheter and x-ray dye. A common test is the “transfemoral arteriogram” performed through the groin (femoral artery) and used to x-ray the thoracic or abdominal aorta, kidney blood supply, and circulation to the legs.

An arteriogram is used both to evaluate aneurysms and atherosclerotic blockage. Currently, many blockages can be treated by angioplasty and stent placement at the time of the arteriogram.

Frequently treated in this manner are narrowing of the renal, iliac, and femoral arteries. If an aneurysm is found requring repair an operative procedure will be necessary, either stent grafting or open repair. An arteriogram is an outpatient procedure in most cases, unless the patient is admitted for surgical therapy.
