A computed tomography angiogram (CT angiogram) uses X-rays and an injected dye to create detailed pictures of the heart and the blood vessels that go to the heart, lung, brain, kidneys, head, neck, legs and arms. A CT angiogram can show narrowed or blocked areas of a blood vessel. It can also reveal whether there is a bulge (aneurysm) or a buildup of fatty material called plaque in a blood vessel.
