I like C - I believe you'd want to use "for" as the preposition is trying to say what the purpose of the angiography is.

This is a tough one though.

The primary defintion of "for" is to be used as a function word to indicate purpose, etc., whereas to is used as a function word to indicate purpose, intention, tendency, or a result. However, "to" is a secondary defintion.

I guess the appositive a sophisticated method for diagnosing coronary disease.

also vote for C

for diagnosing coronary disease involving the introduction
to diagnose coronary disease that involves the introduction of a dye

the above constructions mean that it is a disease that involves introducing a dye. Wrong. It is a METHOD, that involves a dye.

Only C makes it clear.

That sure sounds like you, Victor.

JMHO, but only when you at least make the effort to translate ETS-ese into your OWN WORDS so that us nincompoops can start to comprehend it will you actually start to internalize this stuff yourself.

Stolyar is right, it could modify disease or method. This misplaced modification occurs in the appositive phrase.

Good job, Stolyar

E) to diagnose coronary disease involving the introduction of a dye into the arteries of the heart, which is now administered selectively, uses
-->same to A

C it is.
