Paper Abstract

The application and relevance of intravascular ultrasound is reviewed. We studied 89 arterial segments with prototype intravascular ultrasound imaging systems. For data analysis we use pathology as the reference standard. Qualitative and quantitative comparative studies are presented to elucidate the ultrasonic characterization of arterial morphology and composition. The ability to measure quantitatively arterial lumen area, lumen diameter, wall thickness, plaque area as well as plaque composition make intravascular ultrasound unique.
