cerebral angiography

Cerebral angiography is a procedure to determine if there is an abnormality of any blood vessels supplying blood circulation to the brain. This test can visualize the arteries or veins of the head and the neck. It determines the part of a blood vessel that has ruptured from an aneurysm or determines the area of abnormality caused by an arterovenious malformation, or AVM.
