1. Virtual histology and optical coherence tomography: from research to a broad clinical application

    Invasive coronary imaging techniques have improved our understanding of atherosclerosis and helped us to evaluate the effectiveness of new drugs and new intravascular devices. We have adopted and integrated them rapidly into our clinical decision making process in the catheterisation laboratory. So far, only significant lesions in the coronary angiogram have been treated either by percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) or coronary bypass artery grafting (CABG), while normal looking coronary segments in angiography have been regarded as "disease-free", and mild/moderate stenoses as "non-treatable" by PCI or CABG; from these non-significantly diseased areas, acute coronary events may potentially arise.
