What is venography?

Also known as: venogram.

Venography is an invasive X-Ray imaging test that takes pictures of a contrast dye flowing through the veins of any part of the body (frequently the legs), allowing the radiologist to determine the location and type of any vein abnormality, (like an abnormal anatomy, blockages/clots, enlargements, malformations) or to ensure that catheters are placed correctly for treatments such as an infusion of a drug to dissolve a blood clot.
