Integrated co-registration of IVUS images with angiography
"Before IVUSmap, the operator was trapped with one eye on the angiogram and one eye on the IVUS, in his head trying to fuse them into one morphological image.”1

IVUSmap brings detailed vessel, lumen, and wall structure to angiography and provides spatial localization for IVUS (intravascular ultrasound) images within the coronary tree. It combines the advantages of both modalities through co-registration.
