[Mark Lessne]
Yeah, so going right to the money question, huh? So yeah, I think IVUS is a critical tool for treating venous and I'll argue other vascular pathologies. But just like any other tool, it can be abused and overused and misunderstood. And I do think that the pendulum swung a little bit from where no one was really recognizing deep venous insufficiency, and pelvic insufficiency and nonthrombotic iliac vein compression to now there are some places that are a little bit more capricious and cavalier. And I think we need to make sure that we understand that the totality of our devices and our clinical exam and the presentation must come into consideration, not just one tool.
