    Endovascular Optical Coherence Tomography Device (Wo 2009/094341)
    An endovascular OCT probe is included in an endovasculiar access device for intravascular imaging. The probe includes a hollow coil wire defining an axial lumen of the endovascular access device. A single mode optical fiber for transmitting light is disposed in the axial lumen of the hollow coil wire so that translation and rotation of the hollow coil wire carrying the optical fiber within the endovascular access device is stabilized for scanning endovascuiar tissue with at least 5 microns resolution. An optic element directs light from and into the optical fiber at a distal tip of the optica! fiber and ...
