Intracoronary Ultrasound: With Clinical and Angiographic Correlations by Gary S. Mintz
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Distilling more than ten years of experience with intravascular ultrasound (IVUS), Intracoronary Ultrasound summarizes Dr Mintz's own experiences as well as published and unpublished observations of others in the field. The text incorporates angiographic and uses pathologic observations to fill in the gaps in knowledge of coronary artery disease as assessed by IVUS alone. A major effort went into selecting and presenting figures for their illustrative value. In most cases each IVUS figure includes a linear sequence of equidistantly-spaced image slices that illustrates the full length morphology of the lesion and/or the pullback of the transducer through the lesion. It provides the reader with an excellent guide for revision, confirming diagnoses, and teaching.
