    Current Capabilities and Challenges for Optical Coherence Tomography as a High-Impact Cardiovascular Imaging Modality
    Impact, the ability to have a long-lasting significant influence in the field, has become the focus not only of the National Institutes of Health and the National Science Foundation but also of science in general. An article in this issue, "Optical Coherent Tomographic Analysis of In-Stent Neoatherosclerosis After Drug-Eluting Stent Implantation," deals with 2 high-impact areas of cardiology: extending the diagnostic capabilities of cardiovascular optical coherence tomography (OCT) and the cause of late drug-eluting stent failure.1 With respect to the latter, the article looks at atherosclerotic progression after drug-eluting stent placement and late development of different plaque morphologies, predominantly ...
