Intravascular Ultrasound is a medical imaging technique used to visualize the interior of blood vessels. It uses high-frequency sound waves to produce detailed images of the blood vessels, helping to detect blockages, plaque build-up, and other abnormalities. 

Optical Coherence Tomography is an imaging technique that uses light waves to create high-resolution, cross-sectional images of the coronary arteries.
