IVUS Coronary Imaging System to be Highlighted at ACC

March 31, 2011 – An intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) imaging system will be featured in several oral and poster presentations at the American College of Cardiology 60th Annual Scientific Session in New Orleans. The LipiScan IVUS Coronary Imaging System, from InfraReDx, is the world’s first and only intravascular imaging system that combines and co-registers grayscale intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) with near-infrared spectroscopy lipid core plaque detection technology.

“The LipiScan IVUS permits physicians to identify both the structure – with IVUS – and chemistry – with LipiScan – of coronary plaques in a single pullback,” said Donald Southard, InfraReDx president and CEO. “The IVUS information is useful for determining the degree of stenosis and for guiding stenting, while the LipiScan data can identify stenotic lipid core plaques, which are at increased risk of causing peri-stenting myocardial infarction when dilated.”

The schedule of oral and poster presentations is as follows:
