Abstract

The use of intravascular ultrasound catheters to produce images of lumen and plaque cross-sectional areas has had a profound effect on the practice of interventional cardiology. This imaging modality provides, for the first time, a low-power microscopic view of vascular anatomy within a living patient. This article will review some of the advantages of intravascular ultrasound imaging compared with angiography when used for diagnostic or interventional therapeutic procedures.
