Carotid angiography also called an angiogram, is a test that helps find out if you have a disease in your carotid arteries. Doctors do this test to see how blood flows through the large arteries in your neck.
Carotid angiography detects blockages in the arteries that carry blood from the heart to the head and brain. Providers inject contrast dye with a catheter to see blocked arteries.
Why is it done?
If your doctor thinks you have carotid artery disease, he or she may suggest that you get a carotid angiography. You may also get this test if you've had a mini-stroke (also called a transient ischemic attack) or a stroke.
What is the procedure for the Contrast-Enhanced Carotid MRA Screening Test?
Patients must lie still during the MRA procedure.

* If you are pregnant, notify your technician, as radiation may harm the baby.
No care is required.
