Cardiac Catheterization



A cardiac catheterization is a procedure that helps study the function and structure of your heart. During your catheterization, angiograms (x-ray movies), pressure recordings, and other measurements will help your cardiologist check for coronary artery disease (disease in the heart's arteries), valvular heart disease (disease in the heart’s valves), congenital heart disease (heart disease you were born with), and other conditions. This is one of the most helpful procedures for giving your physician a clear picture of your heart’s overall health.
