Abstract

Intravascular ultrasonography is developing rapidly as a method for defining the transmural anatomy of vascular structures, with diagnostic and therapeutic applications. The ultrasound technology not only has unique diagnostic capabilities by defining the distribution and character of lesions, but also provides accurate control information regarding efficacy of angioplasty methods. An exciting recent development is the three-dimensional reconstruction of two-dimensional images which permits global examination of luminal and transmural vessel morphology. This technology may enable improved guidance of intraluminal devices to enhance lesion removal without damaging adjacent normal wall structure and appropriate device selection by differentiating specific plaque characteristics.
