Intravascular Imaging

This channel includes news and new technology innovations for intra-vascular ultrasound (IVUS) and optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging systems used in the cath lab. These imaging modalities help with diagnostic decisions about how to treat atheroscolosis and help guide device placement and verification of stent apposition. The technology also is used to visualize in-stent restenosis.
