Abstract

Atherosclerotic vascular disease is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in this country. A technique that accurately diagnoses atherosclerotic lesions and is capable of detecting regression of such lesions, will be of considerable value to both the clinician and researcher. Intravascular ultrasound which uses high frequency transducers has been shown to be a useful technique in the diagnosis of atherosclerosis.
