Paper Abstract

A catheter based percutaneous transluminal ultrasound imaging system has been developed by Summit Technology which enables the vascular surgeon or radiologist to acquire real-time ultrasonic images of the cross-section of blood vessels from the unique vantage point of being inside of the vessel lumen. This system was developed for use in the human vascular system to assist in the diagnosis and treatment of vascular disease.
