An angiogram, also called an arteriogram, is an X-ray image of the blood vessels. It is performed to evaluate various vascular conditions, such as an aneurysm (ballooning of a blood vessel), stenosis (narrowing of a blood vessel), or blockages.
Your physician may order an abdominal angiogram to assist in making an accurate diagnosis and, if disease is detected, develop a personalized treatment plan based on the precise nature of your condition and your individual needs. The information obtained through the angiogram will help your physician provide personalized care and the right treatment plan for you.
Jefferson radiologists and technicians use the most advanced biplane angiography technology to obtain detailed images of blood vessels in your abdomen and assess blood flow to your liver and other organs. The Abdominal Imaging Division at Jefferson consists of attending physicians and body-imaging fellows.
Board-Certified Radiologists in Abdominal Imaging
The attending physicians are board-certified radiologists specializing in abdominal imaging, many of whom further subspecialize in specific body regions or imaging techniques. The fellows are board-certified radiologists who have chosen to obtain further advanced training as body imaging specialists. Several of the members of the Division are pioneers in the use of cross-sectional interventional techniques.
