1. 1st Massachusetts General Hospital OCT Registry Symposium Scheduled for March 13, 2010

    1st Massachusetts General Hospital OCT Registry Symposium Scheduled for March 13, 2010

    The utilization of OCT has grown tremendously since the launch of the world’s first frequency domain OCT system (FD-OCT) from LightLab Imaging, Inc. in late 2009.  Over 9,000 cases were performed last year, slightly less than the cumulative cases performed in the three years prior with the older Time Domain OCT which was much slower and harder to use.  “OCT has come a long way".  States Dr. Ik-Kyung Jang.  "I have used the new system and it is really fast and easy to use.  Because of its data acquisition speed no occlusion is required and the image quality is improved as well.”  This symposium represents a first in the OCT community in the U.S. and should help accelerate dialogue on OCT within the global cardiovascular community.
