Test helps see blood vessels Dear Dr. Lamb Can an angiogram be used to diagram the degree of coronary insuffi- ciency and is it a recognized technique for this purpose? Will you describe this procedure? Is it painful? To what degree is it safe? How long is one hospital- ized for an angiogram? How long has it been used and Is it commonly done in hospitals throughout the United States? Dear Reader The term angiogram is not a very spe- cific one. It only means injec- tion of a dye Into an artery or vein so it can be visualized by x-ray. The dye works with bar. ium for an examination of the stomach and outlines the cavity of the vessel on the x-ray. These are often called arteriograms. You can inject dye into the arteries going to the head and have an arteriogram of the ar- teries of the brain (cerebral ar- teriograms) or you can inject dye into the arteries of the heart and have a coronary arterio- gram. You can visualize the ar. teries to the kidneys or legs in Spots are camouflage Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of (he World Book Encyclopedia to Lori Fergu- son, age 8, of Winston Salem, North Carolina, for her ques- tion: Why do fawns have spots? White-tailed deer live in the leafy woods around Winston- Salcm. You may not see them very often because they are shy snd try to keep out of sight. In summer, they wear rusty brown coats. During the day, they stand quietly chewing among the shadowy boughs. You may not notice them hid- ing there. But you may catch a glimpse of a spotted fawn, crouching on the ground among the low bushes. When the baby deer gets to be four months old, his speckled white spots begin to fade away. In olden times ,many wild animals prowled though thick forests in the Southland. Moun- tain lions hunted the white-tail- ed deer. Lynxes and bobcats hunted their baby fawns. The grown-up deer escaped because they could run faster and far- ther than their hungry enemies. They could also leap over bush- es eight feet high and across streams 20 feet wide. But Che baby fawrs had to toddle around on their weak little legs. So the mother dear taught them to hide and their sported coats helped them to blend is with the scenery. When we walk in the woods, our eyes see soft earthy browns and lovely leafy greens. But bears and pumas cannot see colors. Neither can lynxei, bob- cats or any other that go after the deer. They see the scenery in black and while and tones of grey. Our eyes see a baby fawn's bright reddish brown coat, all speckled with bright white spots. But the ani- mals in the woods see only a speckled pattern of greys. And this pattern happens to match the patches of sunshine and shadow. In summer time, the sunbems poke their bright fingers between the leaves and speckle the shadows with bright spots. When hungry animals prowl around, the spotted fawn looks like part of the speckled woodsy scenery. Grown-up deer have a strong musky scent that their enemies an smell. But a baby fawn has no odor. So his hungry enemies usually pass right by without seeing him or smelling him. That is, if the scared little fawn stays perfectly still. The white- tailed mother may have two or even three baby fawns to tend. But she can leave her spotted darlings safely hidden while she gaes to find food for her- self. Every four hours or so, she comes to nuzzle them ten- derly and feed them on mother's milk. Most of the pumas and other deer-hunting animals have gone. Most of the thick, crowd- ed forests also have gone from the Southland. The deer are happier and safer among the thin woods >nd scattered But they still Ukt can of themselves as they always did. The grown-ups hide during the day, always ready to race away from trouble. The spotted fawns still crouch under the bushes to blend with the speckled scenery. There are more than 100 dif- ferent members of the deer family. Most of the mothers have only one fawn each sum- mer. After about four months, they give up mother's milk and start munching the greenery. Their frisky legs are long aid strong enough for running. Then most fawns lose their white spots. However, several mem- bers of the deer family keep their spots all their lives. The handsome grown-ups also wear brown coats with white speckles.

Or you can inject dye into the veins with special procedures, like com- pressing the veins with a tour- niquet, to make the veins stand out on an x-ray. The term angiogram is also used for injection of dye into the cavities of the heart. A se- ries of x-rays taken in succes- sion outline the chambers of the heart as the dye circulates through it, first the right heart chambers and then the left heart chambers. This proce- dure has been done for several decades but has been constant- ly refined to provide better more pictures to see the actual size, shape and structure of the heart chambers. To see the arteries of the heart and tell if they are block- ed or. not several techniques may be used. Dye can be inject- ed into the large aortic artery that comes from the heart. The coronary arteries all come di- rectly from it and the dye will fill them. For more specific pic- tures some highly trained peo- ple place a small tube (cathe- ter) into the opening of the cor- onary artery and inject dye into the artery for the x-ray pic- tures. Since there are two cor- onary arteries, right and left, each one is injected in turn. None of these procedures are unduly painful. If you don't feel well and have to stay a long time on the x-ray table, it can become uncomfortable from that point of view. The degree of safety varies greatly with which one of these techniques yoi- are talking about, so I can't generalize, but of the group I suspect the coronary arter i o- grams, visualizing the arteries to the heart are the most dan- gerous. In the hands of. Indivi- duals who have done a great many of these the danger is slight. In other instances, where the person doing them has not had great experience, they can be dangerous. Ask your doctor how many he has done and what his batting average is. CAPRICORN (Dee. H-Jas Move ahead with career efforts, new ideas and ventures better equipment where you can get it.
