Cerebral Arteriogram

The cerebral arteriogram is a study that evaluates the arteries of the neck which supply blood to the brain, and evaluates the arteries within the brain itself.

Following is a brief listing of conditions that are commonly diagnosed by cerebral angiography.
  • Carotid Artery Stenosis

  • A blockage in the arteries in the neck which supply blood to the brain. This is the major cause of stroke.

  • Subarachnoid Hemorrhage
Bleeding into the space around the brain. This condition is most often caused by a ruptured aneurysm (an abnormal weakening of the wall of the artery).
