Catheter Angiography

Vascular Doctor New York NY

If you can remember back to your Biology class in high school or college, you will recall the intricacies of the network of tubes within the vascular system. These tubes, some big and some small, work to move blood throughout the body. Knowing the intricate design of the human body makes it easy to understand why a specialist is needed to diagnose and monitor any condition that affects blood flow within the body.

One of the methods used to diagnose vascular problems is through catheter angiography. This unique method produces detailed images of blood vessels while incorporating diagnosis and treatment into one procedure (if necessary) as it checks for aneurysms and plaque within the arteries. One of the most beneficial aspects of catheter angiography is that through the detailed and accurate pictures of the blood vessels, it may eliminate the need for surgery.

Dr. Alan Benvenisty performs angiography using:

  • X-rays with catheters
  • Computed tomography (CT)
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)

In catheter angiography, a thin plastic tube, called a catheter, is inserted into an artery through a small incision in the skin. Once the catheter is guided to the area being examined, a contrast material is injected through the tube and images are captured using small doses of ionizing radiation. Catheter angiography is used to examine blood vessels in critical areas of the body, including the:

  • Heart
  • Brain
  • Neck
  • Chest
  • Abdomen
  • Kidneys
  • Pelvis
  • Legs and feet
  • Arms and hands
  • Reproductive system

Through catheter angiography, Dr. Benvenisty can detect injuries, small aneurysms, atherosclerotic disease, kidney disease, dissection or splitting of the aorta, pulmonary embolisms, and obstructions.

If you believe that you or a loved one is suffering from some form of vascular disease, it is imperative that you contact a trusted physician with a special emphasis and extensive experience in vascular diagnosis and surgery. Dr. Alan I. Benvenisty offers a conservative, yet conscientious, approach to all vascular concerns to bring long-term health solutions. Contact Dr. Benvenisty today.

Dr. Benvenisty was excellent and helped us with my husband's extensive leg swelling related to diabetes. We had another specialist who didn't help us last year. We're planning to stay with Dr. Benvenisty now! He's detailed oriented, matter-of-fact and friendly. An excellent doctor I would strongly recommend.


Dr. Benvenisty treated my mother in the ER during this time of the covid outbreak. He was a part of a fantastic team of doctors that were brought in to find out what was ailing my mother. He is first and for most experienced in many areas as my mother was diagnosed with pancreatitis. Although he transferred the surgery to another member of his team, he gave me his mobile and kept me informed of her condition/diagnosis at a time where I was unable to be with her myself because of this pandemic. His heart, compassion, understanding and bedside manner are things that I will not ever forget. He is an excellent doctor and truly a great human being.

Howard L.
