Cardiac Catheterization / Coronary Angiogram

Cardiac catheterization is a diagnostic procedure in which a long thin flexible tube (catheter) is inserted from a blood vessel in your arm or leg and then guided to the heart. Cardiac catheterization can be used to check for narrowing or blockages in the arteries or blood pressure within the heart.
