1. Examination of Accuracy and Factors Influencing Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) Measurements

    (Article in Japanese) Introduction: Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a new imaging modality with increasing clinical application. In the present study, we examined the accuracy and factors influencing the OCT measurements (luminal diameter, area, and stent strut thickness).Methods: We evaluated several luminal sizes of phantom model by OCT with several situations (frame-rate: 8.2 or 15.6 F/s; pullback-speed: 1.0 or 2.0 mm/s; position of Image Wire: in-center; off-center) and compared them with the actual value and the intravascular ultrasound measurements. We also evaluated the accuracy of the stent strut thickness (5 bare metal stents ...
