Sixty percent of the more than 500,000 cases of acute coronary syndrome that lead to death are due to plaque rupture. Understanding the mechanisms of rupture is important to predicting the risk of rupture. Determining these mechanisms begins with acquiring an accurate visualization of the arteries containing fiberoatherotic lesions or fibroatheroma.
