Intravascular Ultrasound, 1991
The introduction of intravascular ultrasound has attracted considerable interest because it yields high-resolution images not only of the vessel lumen but also of the vessel wall and its pathology. The first edition of this book, published in 1989, was mainly dedicated to technical approaches and in vitro studies. Now more clinical experience has been gained, including knowledge on coronary arteries. This second edition provides the reader with a concise overview of all information obtained during the last two years, together with the opinions of acknowledged experts in this field.
