Coronary artery disease (CAD) remains a leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Early and accurate diagnosis of CAD is crucial for timely intervention and improved patient outcomes. This research paper aims to explore the role of angiocardiography as a diagnostic and prognostic tool in unveiling coronary artery disease. Angiocardiography, a technique that utilizes contrast agents and imaging modalities, allows visualization of the coronary arteries, and provides valuable information about the extent and severity of coronary artery disease. This paper reviews the current literature on the diagnostic accuracy of angiocardiography and its prognostic implications for CAD patients. The findings suggest that angiocardiography can effectively identify the presence and location of coronary artery lesions, assess the severity of stenosis, and evaluate myocardial perfusion. Furthermore, angiocardiography findings are strongly associated with adverse cardiac events, including myocardial infarction and cardiac mortality. The paper also discusses the potential limitations and future directions for angiocardiography research, such as advancements in imaging technologies and the development of novel contrast agents. Overall, angiocardiography holds great promise as a valuable diagnostic and prognostic tool in the management of coronary artery disease.
