  5. 5. ConclusionsConclusions • New catheters for coronary thermography are being developed to increase the sensitivity of the current systems. • Thermography is currently being used in the whole cardiovascular system (peripheral arteries, valves) • Coronary sinus temperature measurements may provide in the future important information for the patient; not only for the plaque
