Quantification of coronary calcification by intravascular ultrasound.


BACKGROUND Previous intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) studies have shown that calcification can be quantified by the determination of the arc on one cross-section. However, because calcium levels change along the length of lesions, it is important to assess the length of calcium using serial cross-sectional images. The correlation between the largest arc and… (More)
