Angiography is an imaging technique that uses X-rays to visualize the blood vessels of the heart. It is normally carried out to see if there are any obstructions to the blood flow to the heart. In this technique, a dye is injected into the heart's blood vessels, and an X-ray machine takes images of these colored vessels.
