The term Angiographic refers to the imaging of blood vessels. An essential aspect of the angiography is its use of contrast media to make visible abnormalities in the vascular structure. While there is evidence that angiography was used in ancient Greece, modern angiography has been around for at least a century. Morphologically, the word is made up of two parts: angio, originates from the Greek for vessel, and graph, from the Greek for to draw, to record. Angiography has developed from rudimentary X-ray photography to sophisticated modern CT and MRI scanning. From an etymological perspective, the term has come to signify the production of visual representations of blood vessels. In terms of the pragmatics of its use, angiography is a useful tool for medical doctors to diagnose injury, obstruction, and abnormalities in the vascular system.

As such, its literal definition is “pertaining to vessels” or “vessel-related”. It is commonly used to refer to the imaging technique used to study the vascular tree of the body, in particular to diagnose cardiovascular diseases.
