Overview *

An Aortic Angiogram is an x-ray exam that allows your doctor to look at the aorta and decide if any treatment is necessary. The aorta is the largest blood vessel in your body, starting at your heart and leading down into your abdomen.

Problems with the aorta include:
- Cholesterol deposits that can narrow the interior of the aorta,
- Aneurysms which thin the aortic wall, or
- Abnormal tangles of blood vessels.

Either of these conditions could cause bleeding or death. The test is done on an out-patient basis while you are sedated. Dye is injected into an artery in the groin area, and as the dye circulates through the arteries, x-rays are taken. This procedure is very safe and complications are very rare.
