What is angiogram done for? My mother is supposed to have angiogram soon, she has been suffering hypertension during last several years but it has never shown any symptoms and has been controlled by certain medications. What is the purpose of doing angiogram and is it associated with hypertension? Please post about this. Thanks in advance.

Angiogram allows physician to see patient’s blood vessels and check out their condition. By angiogram can be studied blocked, enlarged, malformed or narrow blood vessels, both arteries and veins. Some of these conditions are related to high blood pressure and may even be underlying cause of certain problems and complications. Angiography is diagnostic procedure, not surgical.
