Intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) is an imaging technique used during coronary angiography. This book provides a systematic introduction to coronary imaging with (IVUS). It is divided into two integrated and extensively cross-referenced parts, the Atlas and the Manual. The Manual describes the rationale, method, and interpretation of IVUS imaging for therapeutic and diagnostic purposes. It also presents a range of both established and evolving clinical and research applications. The Atlas features non-illustrated IVUS images together with corresponding illustrated figures. The reference list and subject index are connected to the Atlas and the Manual, allowing for rapid and easy access to information.
“This is an excellent manual for self-education and SpRs specialising in intervention, and also for reference by those of us who only perform small numbers of IVUS cases per year.”
