Angiography. A surgeon and theatre nurse with a patient during coronary angiography. This involves inserting a catheter into a vein in the groin and feeding it up toward the heart. Once there, a radio-opaque dye is injected allowing the blood vessels to be seen in X-rays using the large digital camera seen on the patient's chest. Photographed in the Kaliningrad Federal Centre of Cardiovascular Surgery, Russia.
