  • Our entire office gets a complete deep cleaning nightly.
  • Exam rooms and equipment are thoroughly disinfected after each patient, from mammography paddles to the CT & MRI bores, to the exam tables, counters, and areas of patient contact.
  • We are maintaining CDC and the state of CT guidelines. All staff and patients are required to wear appropriate face masks and staff wear other required PPE.  Patients without an acceptable mask will be provided one.

New patient flow in place ensures no contact with other patients

  • All paperwork can be completed prior to your exam, forms are available on our website.

Diagnostic Angiography Exam

An angiogram is a diagnostic test that uses x-rays, MRI or CT to take pictures of your blood vessels. Diagnostic angiography is used to help examine blood vessels and diagnose any abnormalities. Often times a contrast is used to see how the blood vessels are working. 

MRA stands for Magnetic Resonance Angiogram or MR Angiography.  An MRA is a test that lets your doctor see inside your blood vessels -- your arteries and veins.  Magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) is used to generate images of arteries in order to evaluate them for stenosis, occlusions, aneurysms or other abnormalities.  The exam is performed in an MRI scanner.  Your doctor may ask you to get one in order to look for and treat problems with your blood vessels

A CTA is a computed tomography angiogram (CT angiogram).  This is a test that uses X-rays to provide detailed pictures of the heart and the blood vessels that go to the heart, lung, brain, kidneys, head, neck, legs, and arms. A CT angiogram can show narrowed or blocked areas of a blood vessel. Computed tomography angiography (CTA) is a computed tomography technique used to visualize arterial and venous vessels throughout the body. Using contrast injected into the blood vessels, images are created to look for blockages, aneurysms, dissections, and stenosis.

Contact your doctor to see if an angiography procedure is appropriate for you. To learn more please call Guilford Radiology at 203-453-5123.
