It is a remarkable fact that the first arteriogram was published within a few months of Roentgen’s discovery of X-rays in 1895. This was achieved by injecting radiopaque paste into the artery of a cadaver upper limb, but it demonstrates that the possibility of human angiography was realized even at that early stage of the new science. However, in vivo angiography was not achieved until the 1920s, and it needed the development of safer intravascular contrast media in the 1930s, and percutaneous techniques of injection in the 1940s and 1950s for percutaneous arteriography to become a routine radiological procedure.
