A renal angiography is a type of imaging test that examines the blood vessels in your kidneys. It can be used by your healthcare provider to examine blood vessel ballooning (aneurysm), blood vessel narrowing (stenosis), or blood vessel blockages. He or she can also assess how well blood flows to your kidneys.
The radiologist injects a contrast dye into the artery that leads to the kidney for the test. The dye is then observed as it flows through the blood vessels in the kidneys using X-ray images. A renal angiogram may be required to assist your healthcare provider in detecting problems in your kidney's blood vessels. These issues may include: Blood vessel enlargement (aneurysm)
Blood vessel constriction (stenosis), A blood vessel spasm (vasospasm), faulty connection between arteries and veins (arteriovenous malformation), Clot in the blood (thrombosis)
Blockage (occlusion) (occlusion) A renal angiogram may also be required to assist your provider in diagnosing: Tumours, Bleeding (haemorrhage) (haemorrhage), Kidney transplant complications.

Consider keeping a record of all X-rays you receive, including previous scans and X-rays for other health reasons. Show your provider this list. The risks of radiation exposure may be related to the number of X-rays and X-ray treatments received over time.
Inform your healthcare provider if you are pregnant or suspect you are pregnant. Pregnancy radiation exposure may result in birth defects.
Are you allergic or sensitive to any medications, contrast dye, or iodine? There is a risk of allergic reaction to contrast dye because it is used.
