Abstract

Evaluation of atherosclerotic plaque composition and morphometry may yield insight into plaque biology and the mechanisms of plaque-associated thrombosis. Analysis of intravascular ultrasound radiofrequency (IVUS-RF) backscatter signal is one technology that provides in vivo assessment of both atherosclerotic plaque composition and morphometry. We summarize three different approaches to IVUS-RF and critique the studies using this technology. In addition, we address the potential application of IVUS-RF to assess vulnerable plaque.
