OBJECTIVES This in vitro study was designed to test the hypothesis that a structural analysis based on intravascular ultrasound images of atherosclerotic vessels obtained before angioplasty can be used to predict plaque fracture locations and balloon pressures required to cause fracture. BACKGROUND Intravascular ultrasound imaging performed before interventional procedures has potential for providing information useful for guiding therapeutic strategies. METHODS Intravascular imaging was… Expand
