Angiography > Exams & Procedures > Subclavian Venogram (Pacemaker Assessment)
This test is a venous study to look at the blood vessels in your chest. It will help the cardiologist determine where your pacemaker wires go. The test will also reveal any abnormalities in the vessels, such as stenosis (narrowing).
An intravenous will be started in your arm and contrast will be injected through the intravenous, commonly called an IV. It is not a painful procedure. You will be allowed to leave immediately after the test.
The procedure takes about 1/2 hour.
