This clinical trial is for men and women who will undergo coronary angiography, a minimally invasive catheter-based procedure to visualize the arteries that supply blood to the heart, whose procedure is likely to include IVUS (intravascular ultrasound imaging, which employs a miniaturized ultrasound probe attached to the catheter).
The purpose of this study is to determine whether detecting cholesterol-rich plaques in the coronary arteries using near-infrared light can predict future coronary problems for persons who have already experienced such problems. Study subjects will be followed up for 2 years after the coronary angiography procedure.
Men and women age 18 and older who will undergo coronary angiography including IVUS may enroll in the study if they have been diagnosed with one of the following conditions:
Detailed eligibility requirements will be reviewed when you contact the study team.
