Cerebral Angiography Procedure
Cerebral angiography is a form of angiography that visualizes the arterial and venous supply of the brain. This medical imaging technique was pioneered by Dr. Egas Moniz in 1927, and is now the gold standard for detecting vascular problems of the brain.

The most common risks of a Cerebral Angiography procedure are:
- Injury to the arteries entered
- Bleeding at the site of entry by catheter
- Blindness or brain damage
- Emboli to the brain
