Angioplasty is an endovascular procedure to widen narrowed or obstructed arteries or veins, typically to treat arterial atherosclerosis. angiography is a medical imaging technique used to visualize the inside, or lumen of blood vessels. CT angio gives better picture .Here angiography and ct angio are used for diagnostic purpose ,angioplasty is a therapeutic intervention.
