Paper Abstract

Intraluminal vascular ultrasound (IVUS) is developing rapidly as a method to define the transmural anatomy of vascular structures for both diagnostic and therapeutic applications. Current devices use various configurations of transducers at the end of an intraluminal catheter to make real time images of cardiac structures and vessel walls. These devices may have diagnostic applications, particularly at the time of angiography or catherization for symptomatic cardiovascular disease.
