ventriculography

 [ven-trik″u-log´rah-fe]
1. radiography of the cerebral ventricles after introduction of air or other contrast medium. This study is no longer used to examine the brain; being replaced by CT and MRI.
2. radiography of a ventricle of the heart after injection of a contrast medium.

ven·tric·u·log·ra·phy

(ven-trik'yū-log'ră-fē),
1. Radiographic demonstration of the cerebral ventricles by direct injection of air or contrast medium; developed and described by Dandy in 1918. Compare: pneumoencephalography.
2. Demonstration of the contractility of the cardiac ventricles by recording serially the distribution of intravenously injected radionuclide or that of radiographic contrast medium injected through an intracardiac catheter.
