Cardiac catheterization treatment also called cardiac cath or coronary angiogram is an invasive imaging procedure that is used to check and treat the condition of your heart. In this form of treatment a long, thin and flexible tube known as catheter is inserted into the patient's groin, arm or led through the blood vessels and threaded to the heart with a help of a special X-ray machine. A kind of dye is then injected through this long tube so that images of your valves, chambers and arteries can be created. With the catheter inserted an image created, a cardiologist can then perform the many different diagnostics to test the cardiovascular condition. At times, this test can also include coronary catheterization to test the condition of the coronary arteries. Apart from testing the cardiovascular functions, cardiac catheterization treatment is also used to monitor and test the function of the different parts of our heart like the chambers, the valves and also the wall of the heart.
