Cerebral angiography is a high-tech diagnosis and treatment methodology that uses a catheter, x-ray imaging guidance, and injection of contrast material to identify issues in the blood vessels in the brain. This method can be used to identify abnormalities like diseases or aneurysms in the brain. One of the highlights of this method is the use of the catheter, which makes the method versatile enough to be used as a diagnostic tool and a treatment delivery method.

For Barak Valley and its adjoining states, this accomplishment was achieved by Dr. Sambuddha Dhar, Dr. Sukalyan Purkayastha, and the team. For the region’s residents, the knowledge that advanced procedures such as these could be done right here at SMCH would bring a sense of pride and relief.
