    The ability of optical coherence tomography for assessment of intermediate coronary stenosis comparison with quantitative coronary angiography
    Objective Optical coherence tomography is a new intravascular imaging method with a high resolution of approximately 10 μm. This study aims to examine quantitative optical coherence tomography (OCT) derived measurements intermediate coronary stenosis from quantitative coronary angiography (QCA). Methods 240 patients with coronary intermediate stenosis by quantitative coronary angiography (QCA) and underwent OCT assessment of the lesions artery. The results from QCA and OCT were compared using unpaired t-test. Multiple regression analysis was performed. The latter of MACE was significantly lower than that by QCA detected. Results A total of 118 stenotic coronary lesions were classified as intermediate by QCA ...
