Endocardial echocardiography through the catheter inserts a very small ultrasound probe into the lumen to help determine the structure of atherosclerotic plaque, the diameter of the vessel lumen.

Intravascular (intravascular - IVUS) echocardiography. Through a catheter, a very small ultrasound probe is inserted into the lumen of the vessel (usually the coronary artery) to help determine the structure of the atherosclerotic plaque, the diameter of the lumen and the healthy part of the vessel for effective coronary intervention. more effective
