    Optical Coherence Tomography: An Eye Into the Coronary Artery

    Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is slowly but surely gaining a foothold in the hands of interventional cardiologists. Intraluminal and transmural contents of the coronary arteries are no longer elusive to the cardiologist's probing eye. Although the graduation of an interventionalist in imaging techniques right from naked eye angiographies to ultrasound-based coronary sonographies to the modern light-based OCT has been slow, with the increasing regularity of complex coronary cases in practice, such a transition is inevitable. Although intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) due to its robust clinical data has been the preferred imaging modality in recent years, OCT provides a distinct upgrade ...
