Angiography alone is  not enough in PCI 


Angiography provides information on luminal characteristics of vessels, but does not provide a clear picture of the vessel and disease.


However, with IVUS guidance you can see more clearly and improve patient outcomes with informed pre-stent planning and post-stent optimization.1
