BACKGROUND True 3D reconstruction of coronary arteries in patients based on intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) may be achieved by fusing angiographic and IVUS information (ANGUS). The clinical applicability of ANGUS was tested, and its accuracy was evaluated quantitatively. METHODS AND REUSLTS: In 16 patients who were investigated 6 months after stent implantation, a sheath-based catheter was used to acquire IVUS images during an R-wave-triggered, motorized stepped pullback. First, a single set of… CONTINUE READING
