CT angiogram for lung cancer

What is a CT angiogram?

A CT angiogram allows doctors to examine the pulmonary artery, which is the main artery that supplies blood to the lungs from the heart. In this test, a special iodine-based contrast material is injected into the body before a CT scan to illuminate the pulmonary artery and smaller blood vessels in the chest.
