Context: Coronary intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) allows for identification and quantification of intraplaque features. Coronary atherosclerosis imaging with 18F-sodium fluoride (18F-NaF) allows for assessment of intraplaque calcification, which is a feature of plaque vulnerability.

Methods and Results: The authors aimed to study the relationship between 18F-NaF uptake in the coronary arteries and plaque composition on coronary intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) in patients with symptomatic coronary artery disease...
