New, ultra high frequency (UHF) ultrasound techniques enable visualisation of the separate layers of the vessel wall. This allows us to establish in which part of the vessel wall the initial changes appear, as well as possibly identifying changes at an earlier stage than with the composite measurement of IMT by conventional methods.
Take a look at the NEW Vevo LAZR-X Photoacoustic Imaging System (featured at WMIC - World Molecular Imaging Congress in September). Presented by Drew Heinmiller, Product Manager, Fujifilm VisualSonics.
