French term or phrase: angioscintigraphie cardiaque
I think a scintigraphie is a scintiscan in English, adn I know what angio and cardiaque mean, but I don't know how to put it all together. Can someone help please?

English translation:Cardiac angioscintigraphy
Explanation:
I would keep it closer to the original.
The meaning is: Visualize the vessels of the heart(e.g. angio= vessels and cardiaque=heart). The procedure is undertaken to find out if there are clots in the vessels.

Coronary radioisotope angiography


Explanation:
Angioscintigraphie ou gamma-angiographie. C'est l'étude de la circulation artérielle, puis veineuse, dans un territoire vasculaire donné, au moyen d'un isotope radioactif émetteur de rayons y, injecté dans une veine et dont le cheminement est enregistré par une caméra à scintillations.

This is another translation to compare with the one I gave previously, but I think this second one is better.

Hope this helps.
