Cardiac Catheterization

Cardiac Catheterization Lab

Cardiac catheterization (cardiac cath or heart cath) is a procedure to examine how well your heart is working. A thin, hollow tube called a catheter is inserted into a large blood vessel in the arm, groin or neck that leads to your heart. Dye is injected from the catheter into blood vessels to make them visible using special x-rays called angiograms. The procedure takes 2-3 hours.
