Abstract:

Subsequently, staff and investigator training for the new year infrared System was accomplished. An initial cohort of sixteen patients were studied as targeted in our quarterly report milestone dated July 17 2013. This data set is included in this report. Successful infrared spectroscopy and intravascular ultrasound measurements were obtained on all run-in patients. Feedback to development engineers has resulted in console and electronic redesign, Improvements and pullback functionality, and importantly, improvement in catheter design with respect to profile and image quality. This has resulted in A recent upgrade to the operational system in our laboratory. This system with associated catheters will be used in studies beginning in November 2013.
