    Characterization of Cardiac Tissue Using Optical Coherence Tomography (Thesis)
    Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) therapy is the standard of care for the treatment of cardiac arrhythmias. Current techniques to guide ablation therapy utilize low resolution two dimensional fluoroscopic images and functional measurements from the RFA catheter, temperature, impedance and electrograms. High resolution, depth resolved imaging is needed to characterize early structural changes in the myocardium due to disease and therapy. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a noninvasive imaging modality that provides high resolution, depth resolved imaging of tissue microstructure in real time. OCT provides subsurface imaging of depths 1-2 mm in cardiac tissue with high spatial resolution (~10 μm) in three ...
