in performing intracoronary ultrasound studies. Diagnostic
and interventional applications are covered in detail.
After completing the interactive Intravascular Ultrasound
(IVUS) program, the user will be able to:
Continuing Medical Education
- Understand basic concepts of arterial structure, plaque composition
and abnormal arterial variants.
- Identify plaque morphologies in real-time images.
- Perform complex image analyses and measurements, describing
normal and abnormal variants of coronary artery.
- Select various interventional strategies with interactive
outcomes in a realistic setting, based upon image interpretation
made during the use of the program.
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance
