arteriography

 [ahr-te″re-og´rah-fe]
angiography of an artery or arterial system.
catheter arteriography radiography of vessels after introduction of contrast material through a catheter inserted into an artery.
coronary arteriography angiography of the coronary arteries, in which a cardiac catheter is inserted into an artery, usually the femoral or brachial artery, advanced under fluoroscopic guidance, and used to inject contrast medium directly into the coronary orifices. It is most often used in evaluations of patients with angina pectoris, prior to coronary artery surgery or percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty.
selective arteriography radiography of a specific vessel that is opacified by a medium introduced directly into it, usually via a catheter.

ar·te·ri·og·ra·phy

(ar-tēr'ē-og'ră-fē),
Demonstration of an artery or arteries by x-ray imaging after injection of a radiopaque contrast medium.

arteriography

[ärtir′ē·og′rəfē]
Etymology: Gk, arteria, airpipe, graphein, to record
a method of radiological visualization of arteries performed after a radiopaque contrast medium is introduced into the bloodstream or into a specific vessel by injection or through a catheter. See also angiography. arteriographic, adj.

arteriography

The diagnostic imaging of an artery which, in the classic sense, is based on plain film imaging or so-called projectional imaging. The term now includes CT imaging of blood vessels (CT angiography) and MRI of blood vessels (MRI angiography), as well as isotope angiography, more correctly termed isotope perfusion. 

Angiography is commonly used as a synonym of arteriography, despite the fact that while all arteriography (imaging of arteries) is angiography (imaging of blood vessels), not all angiography is arteriography, given that  angiography also includes venography (imaging of veins).

arteriography

Imaging The visualization of arteries by injecting a radiocontrast into an artery suspected of having significant stenosis or occlusion–eg, affected by ASHD which, if untreated, may lead to infarction of a limb or organ, long-term disability, death Sites performed Carotid, coronary, femoral arteries; each may require surgical or medical–ie non-surgical therapy, if the artery is severely occluded.

ar·te·ri·og·ra·phy

(ahr-ter'ē-og'ră-fē)
Visualization of an artery or arteries by x-ray imaging after injection of a radiopaque contrast medium
See also: angiography
[arterio + G.graphō, to write]

arteriography

X-ray examination of arteries following injection of a radio-opaque dye. The same as ANGIOGRAPHY.

Arteriography

A medical test in which an x-ray visible dye is injected into blood vessels. This dye allows the blood vessels to be imaged with x rays.

ar·te·ri·og·ra·phy

(ahr-ter'ē-og'ră-fē)
Demonstration of an artery or arteries by x-ray imaging after injection of a radiopaque contrast medium.
[L. arteria, + G. graphō, to write]

arteriography

radiography of an artery or arterial system after injection of a contrast medium in the bloodstream. See also angiography.

cerebral arteriography
a radiographic procedure designed to visualize the blood supply to the brain in order to demonstrate the presence of a space-occupying lesion.
