Intravascular ultrasound (IVUS)

The intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) enables accurate morphological visualization of the vessels and / or bottlenecks using an invasive examination introducing a small ultrasonic catheter into the coronary vessel. Improved visualization of the coronary vessels allows the doctors to evaluate the severity of coronary artery stenosis, improve the control of coronary interventions and judge about the outcome of the intervention.
