This comprehensive presentation of the technical and clinical data on imaging and cardiovascular structures provides methods of guidance during interventional peripheral and cardiac angioplasty procedures. It also describes how catheters work, what the images mean, and what the clinical uses of this new modality will be. The text is supplemented by an hour-long instructive videotape.
