Abstract

Coronary angiography has been widely used for five decades to evaluate a range of vascular pathologies and triage patients to therapeutic interventions. The inability to directly visualize the artery wall with conventional angiographic techniques has stimulated development of a number of intravascular imaging modalities. These approaches have the potential to provide a more comprehensive characterization of the burden, composition and functionality of atherosclerotic plaque, neointimal hyperplasia and allograft vasculopathy that develop within coronary arteries. The ability to use these modalities in vivo and in a serial fashion has provided a greater insight into the factors that underlie the disease process and guide therapeutic interventions.
