Angiography has progressed to ever more differentiated and meticulous diagnostic procedures. The first examination of postmortem arteries in 1896 by Haschek and Lindenthal [182] was followed 27 years later by the first usable angiograms in patients by Berberich and Hirsch [69]. Interventional angiography developed over a period of 10 years from the first vascular dilatation by Dotter and Judkins [126–130] to the introduction of various angiographic methods, such as embolization [164], mechanical thrombus extraction [14, 36, 47, 55, 64], laser therapy [1–6, 24–26], and stent implantation [65, 123, 145, 297–299, 353].
