An angiographic or diagnostic catheter is intended for
use in angiographic procedures. It delivers radiopaque media and therapeutic
agents to selected sites in the vascular system. It is also used to lead a
guidewire or a catheter into the target site.

catheter's ultra-thin wall creates a large lumen to enable a
short injection time2
and BLK curves enable angiography of right and left coronary arteries using
either a radial or brachial approach. This single catheter concept decreases
procedure and fluoroscopy times, providing both procedural and cost-efficiency3
