Abstract
Rupture of lipid-rich arterial atheromas is believed to be the cause of most acute coronary events. We show that high sensitivity and specificity in the detection of these lesions is possible through whole blood varying from 0 to 3mm using near-infrared reflectance spectroscopy. This enables the use of a non-occlusive, intra-coronary catheter to screen high-risk patients to guide therapy.
