Optimal Use of Left Ventriculography at the Time of Cardiac Catheterization

Consensus Statement

A Consensus Statement from the Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions (SCAI)

The technique and frequency of use of left ventriculography vary by geographic regions, institutions, and individuals. When left ventriculography is performed, proper technique must be used to generate high-quality data to direct patient management. This statement aims to demonstrate the role of left ventriculography at the time of coronary angiography or left heart catheterization.
