The united functionality of Laser-based near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) and high fidelity 40MHz ultrasonics makes this catheter hugely successful. In single pull back, a whole lot of information can be gathered, including the structural and compositional information needed to characterize a vessel. The results generated with the intravascular imaging catheter are extremely vivid and crisp.
