ABSTRACT
Catheter angiography provides the diagnostic capability of precise, definitive radiological investigation of the aorta and the major arterial systems of the body. This capability furthermore allows the examination to be done segmentally or selectively. It allows direct demonstration of a variety of congenital and acquired cardiac lesions. It is an essential procedure in the preoperative study of candidates for open-heart surgery and patients with other reconstructive vascular surgical problems. Intestinal angiography offers a new and promising diameter in the diagnostic evaluation of patients with abdominal disease.
