Results of the PROSPECT II Natural History Study Demonstrate High-Risk Plaques Identified by NIRS+IVUS Imaging are Linked to Future Coronary Events

Infraredx, a Nipro Company, a pioneer in intravascular imaging for mapping coronary artery disease, announced positive results from the PROSPECT II and PROSPECT ABSORB studies, presented today as a late-breaking clinical trial at TCT Connect, the 32nd annual scientific symposium of the Cardiovascular Research Foundation.
