iLab® Intravascular Ultrasound Imaging System

When you have a complex decision to make, knowledge is power. IVUS helps you see what FFR can’t, providing at least 10 different pieces of information on the target lesion compared to FFR’s one. You’ll know everything from lesion significance and stent expansion to percent stenosis and stent apposition. And the more you know, the more you can do for your patient. For IVUS solutions that support clinically sound decisions, look to Boston Scientific to see what matters.

IVUS Is Clinically Relevant¹

One-year data from theWashington Hospital Center (WHC) IVUS vs. No IVUS DES Study show that patients in the IVUS group had:

The study concluded that using IVUS during DES implantation has the potential to influence treatment strategy and affect both DES thrombosis and the need for repeat procedures.
