A venogram is an Reference X-ray Opens New Window test that takes pictures of blood flow through the veins in a certain area of the body.
During a venogram, a special dye (Reference contrast material Opens New Window) is put into your veins so they can be seen clearly on an X-ray picture. A venogram looks at the condition of your veins and the valves in your veins.
A venogram can show the veins in your legs, pelvis, or arm; the veins leading to the heart; or the veins leaving your kidneys.
