Three-vessel coronary artery disease evaluation by multimodality imaging with near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) plus intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and optical coherence tomography (OCT)

Published:November 05, 2014DOI:https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ijcard.2014.11.027
      There is a rapid evolution in hybrid intravascular imaging for identifying high-risk biological and structural coronary arterial plaques in vivo and searching the missing pieces of the complex puzzle that determine the pathophysiology of myocardial infarction [
