    Optical Coherence Tomography of the Coronary Arteries

    Intravascular imaging, particularly optical coherence tomography, has brought significant improvement in diagnostic and therapeutical approaches to coronary artery disease and has offered superior high-resolution visualization of coronary arteries. The ability to obtain images of intramural and transmural coronary structures allows the study of the process of atherosclerosis, effect of therapies, mechanism of acute coronary syndrome and stent failure, and performance of new devices and enables the interventional cardiologist to optimize the effect of percutaneous coronary intervention. In this review, we provide the summary of the latest published data on clinical use of optical coherence tomography as well as practical algorithm ...
