Bibliographical note

Funding Information:
PROSPECT also collected a bounty of other clinically important data, beyond what was available at first publication. Some of these data were confirmed, for the first time in vivo, what was known or suspected from other sources, mainly postmortem pathology. Yet other data provided new insights into behavior of nonculprit vessel plaque. Because the ability to image and detect vulnerable plaque has significant implications in clinical care, PROSPECT deserves an in-depth analysis. This supplement, being sent with the current issue of iJACC, summarizes much of these additional insights from the PROSPECT study. While the supplement was supported by the Cardiovascular Research Foundation and publication of this supplement was made possible with unrestricted educational grants from Abbott Vascular and Volcano Corporation, the peer review process for these papers was exactly the same as for regular iJACC papers and completely independent from any input from these entities.
