Hello,

After going through your medical query I understand your concern and I would like to tell you that angiography is an advanced diagnostic test not a disease and is advised to evaluate coronary artery disease to prevent any heart damage. So it's recommended for you to get it done so the best treatment choice can be made at right time.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Bhanu Partap, Cardiologist
