    Optical coherence tomography: Current Cardiovascular Imaging Reports
    Optical coherence tomography (OCT) with micron-scale resolution has become a key intracoronary imaging modality in vivo, providing insights not only into mechanisms of atherosclerotic coronary artery disease, but also into the understanding of vascular response following stent implantation. Although the time-domain OCT system has some technical limitations to acquire images, the recently developed frequency-domain OCT with faster pullback speeds has simplified the procedural requirements with elimination of an occlusion balloon. This article outlines the current and future developments in OCT technology for clinical use and research.
