Peripheral Angiography

Peripheral angiography is an invasive procedure that requires inserting small tubes (catheters) into the body and using x-ray images to visualize arteries in the head, neck, kidneys, legs and abdomen. If blockages are detected they can be treated by balloons, stents or other devices.
