  • There are two primary reasons why intravascular ultrasound has not yet reached its potential for interventional cardiology. First, image quality has been poor given the possible operating frequencies and numerical apertures. And second, there is no application where routine imaging critically guides an intervention. Over the last 5 years, the Biomedical Ultrasonics Lab at the University of Michigan and Endosonics Corporation have worked together to directly address these issues. Recent progress… CONTINUE READING
