We know that medical exams often raise questions. For this reason, we have compiled this FAQ text on angiography for you. We want you to feel safe and well informed with us.
What exactly is angiography?
Angiography is a special image of the back of the eye that visualizes the blood vessels. A dye is introduced into the blood vessels, which becomes visible on the image. This allows us to accurately assess the condition of your blood vessels.
Is that painful?
Don't worry! The examination is usually painless. You may feel a slight warm sensation when the dye is inserted, but this is temporary.
Why is angiography necessary?
Angiography allows us to detect narrowing, blockages or other abnormalities in your blood vessels. Based on this data, we plan the optimal treatment for you.
Are there any risks involved?
Every medical examination has its risks. In angiography, these are minimal. It may happen that the dye causes allergic reactions in some, but this is rare. We take all the necessary safety precautions and are ready for anything.
How much time should I allow?
The examination usually takes between 15 minutes and one hour. After that, plan some more rest time.
Should I come on an empty stomach?
Yes, it is advisable not to eat or drink before the examination. We will give you the necessary instructions for this beforehand.
