Articles Featuring Dr. Eric Secemsky
Intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) imaging has shown benefits such as improved vessel assessment, enhanced procedural efficiency, reduced need for additional imaging and radiation exposure, and potential long-term durability of interventions. However, challenges in implementation, including cost, learning curve, and time constraints, need to be addressed to facilitate wider adoption of IVUS procedure.
