Paper Abstract

Many approaches to imaging of unstable plaque have been applied to detect vascular thrombosis and occlusion with only moderate success. LFS detected significant and specific changes in thrombogenic plaque in a rabbit model. Fluorescence emission intensity analysis of structural characteristics may provide an optical diagnostic technique for early recognition of unstable coronary syndromes.
