In the procedure thin plastic tubes called catheters are inserted through a small puncture in the skin and into the arteries to be visualized. An x-ray dye in injected through the catheters to allow the vessels to be seen on X-ray. In addition, specialised guidewires and devices, like balloons and stents, can be inserted via the catheter to treat irregularities in the artery.
