Angiographic X-ray of a cross-femoral bypass in a 53-year-old patient (front view). A cross-femoral bypass is a surgical procedure in which diseased iliac arteries are bypassed by an artificial blood vessel (running from left to right across the bottom of the frame here), which carries blood from the femoral artery supplying the good leg (at left) to the main artery in the affected leg. Angiography is a diagnostic procedure in which a contrast medium opaque to X-rays is injected into the bloodstream to allow blood vessels to be studied on an X-ray.
