Angioscopy enables us macroscopic pathological diagnosis of cardiovascular diseases from the inside. This imaging modality has been intensively directed to characterizing vulnerable coronary plaques. Scoring of plaque color was developed, and based on prospective studies, dark yellow or glistening yellow plaques were proposed as vulnerable ones. Colorimetry apparatus was developed to . Atherosclerotic plaque deposition within the coronary vessel wall leads to arterial stenosis and severe catastrophic events over time. Identification of these atherosclerotic plaque components is essential to pre-estimate the risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and stratify them as a high or low risk. The characterization and quantification of coronary plaque components are not only vital but Cited by:
Detection and Quantification of Coronary Atherosclerotic Plaque Using Different Imaging Modalities Mohammad Karimi Moridani Biomedical Engineering Department, Science and Research Branch, Islamic Azad Universit y, Tehran, Iran. Abstract. The behavior and composition of coronary atherosclerotic plaques are ultimately responsible for the threat. Results. Multicolor CT enabled differentiation of Au-HDL, iodine-based contrast material, and calcium phosphate in the phantoms. Accumulations of Au-HDL were detected in the aortas of the apo E–KO mice, while the iodine-based contrast agent and the calcium-rich tissue could also be detected and thus facilitated visualization of the vasculature and bones (skeleton), respectively, during a Cited by:

However, its localization in human coronary plaques is not well understood. The present study was performed to visualize ApoB in human coronary artery by: 6. Purpose of Review: In vivo imaging of the native substances, including lipoproteins, that comprise human atherosclerotic plaques is currently beyond the scope of any available imaging techniques.
Color and near-infrared fluorescent angioscopy (CFA and NIRFA, respectively) systems have been recently developed for molecular imaging of lipoproteins within the human coronary arterial wall ex vivo Cited by: 6.

Written by a distinguished pioneer in the history and development of coronary angioscopic techniques, Coronary Angioscopy is the first and only book to systematically describe the present status of percutaneous coronary angioscopy and cardioscopy.
Cardiologists and other interested physicians will value its clear explanations of the pathophysiology of coronary artery diseases, as well as the.
Maria Drakopoulou, Dimitris Tousoulis, in Coronary Artery Disease, Angioscopy. Angioscopy is an invasive imaging modality that evaluates the luminal surface by direct visualization of the interior of blood vessels .Atherosclerotic plaques are seen as well-demarcated white, yellow or orange protrusions into the lumen.
Coronary angioscopy or cardioscopy using biocompatible markers is one choice for evaluation of tissues, cells, or molecules which comprise the target lesions.
Angioscopy using EB as a biomarker, namely, dye-staining angioscopy, has been developed and applied for molecular imaging of the substances that constitute atherosclerotic : Takanobu Tomaru, Fumitaka Nakamura, Yoshiharu Fujimori, Yasumi Uchida.

Accurate identification and quantification of coronary plaque components on CT is challenging because of the limited temporal, spatial, and contrast resolutions of Cited by: atherosclerotic activity and plaque vulnerability. Currently, multidetector CT is capable of the noninvasive detection of coronary stenosis and coronary calcifications.
High resolution CT may be beneficial in the detection of noncalcified vulnerable coronary plaques, and more reliable with the use of newer high-speed volume CT scanners. Molecular Imaging of High-Risk Atherosclerotic Plaques high-risk atherosclerotic plaques have translated clinically.
