Cardiac Catheterization

A thin plastic catheter is inserted into an artery or vein then advanced into the chambers of the heart or coronary arteries. This procedure measures blood pressure within the heart, how much oxygen is in the blood and the pumping ability of the heart muscle. A flat panel cath lab provides high-resolution images.
