Left ventriculography (LVG) provides information about left ventricular (LV) function, mitral regurgitation, ventricular septal defect, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, and intraventricular thrombus.

Aortography remains the standard for pre-operative assessment of thoracic aorta aneurysms, aortic regurgitation, coarctation, or other congenital anomalies, to visualize questionable coronary bypass grafts and to assess proximal segments of aortic branches.

Pulmonary angiography is used for the diagnosis of pulmonary embolism, arteriovenous malformation, and anomalous pulmonary venous return.

The cardiologist may decide to add angiography of the carotid, renal, or pelvic arteries on top of coronary angiography (CAG) to diagnose pathologies of these arteries.
