Figure 1 : 

Illustration of the superiority of IVUS over angiography in terms of assessing the severity of coronary lesions. Left panel: an ambiguous lesion with less than 50% stenosis. Right panel: IVUS measurement of the same lesion demonstrates a flow-limiting lesion.

Figure 2 : 

Predictors of angiographic restenosis after implantation of SES. Sensitivity and specificity curves identify a minimum stent area of 5.5mm2 and a stented length of 40mm as the cut-offs predictive of restenosis on IVUS measurement (from Hong et al. [24]).

Kaplan-Meier curves comparing freedom from ST during one-year follow-up in patients who had IVUS-guided PCI or angiography-guided PCI (from Roy et al. [13]).
