The Stanford Catheterization Angiography Laboratory
The Stanford Catheterization Angiography Laboratory aims to provide minimally invasive catheter based radiological procedures to inpatients and outpatients for diagnostic evaluation and/or therapeutic intervention.
The Cath Angio Lab specializes in adult and pediatric interventional cardiology, electrophysiology, neuroradiology, and interventional radiology. The diagnostic procedures performed in the lab typically use the administration of contrast media for visualization of selective anatomical structures and measurement of pressures and blood flow for determination of vascular integrity.
