[Series] Intravascular imaging in coronary artery disease

Although it is the method used by most interventional cardiologists to assess the severity of coronary artery disease and guide treatment, coronary angiography has many known limitations, particularly the fact that it is a lumenogram depicting foreshortened, shadowgraph, planar projections of the contrast-filled lumen rather than imaging the diseased vessel itself. Intravascular imaging—intravascular ultrasound and more recently optical coherence tomography—provide a tomographical or cross-sectional image of the coronary arteries.
