Ischemic Cardiomyopathy Cardiac Catheterization

A cardiac catheterization, or coronary angiogram, may be used to evaluate ischemic cardiomyopathy. A cardiac catheterization is a procedure that identifies narrowed or blocked coronary arteries. During the procedure, a catheter is used to inject dye into the coronary arteries. An x-ray machine is used to show the dye flowing through the arteries.

Examples include:
