From wikipedia
Treating a blocked (“stenosed”) coronary artery with a stent follows the same steps as other angioplasty procedures with a few important differences. The interventional cardiologist uses angiography to assess the location and estimate the size of the blockage (“lesion”) by injecting a contrast medium through the guide catheter and viewing the flow of blood through the downstream coronary arteries.
