Intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) employs a miniature ultrasound probe positioned at the tip of a coronary catheter to emit ultrasound signal which is reflected from surrounding tissue and then reconstructed into a real-time tomographic gray-scale image. IVUS directly images the vessel inside, allowing measurement of plaque morphology, distribution and exact vessel composition. Recent technical developments enable processing of the backscattered ultrasound radiofrequency signal underlying the… CONTINUE READING
