Angiography is a procedure performed to view blood vessels in many areas of the body. Traditionally, this is done by injecting a harmless dye that is radiopaque (does not allow X-rays to penetrate) and so the blood vessels can be outlined on X-rays or by using other imaging techniques.

Echocardiogram (ECG)

Echocardiography involves a non-invasive diagnostic test that uses ultrasound waves to create either two-dimensional or three-dimensional images of the heart chambers, valves and surrounding structures. The images are called an echocardiogram.

Hypertension can cause such conditions as blood vessel changes in the retina (at the back of the eye), abnormal thickening of the heart muscle, kidney failure, and brain damage. Regular blood pressure checks help with diagnosis. In most cases, no specific cause is found. Hypertension is treated with regular aerobic exercise, weight reduction for those overweight, salt restriction, and medications to control blood pressure.
