    The diagnostic value of intracoronary optical coherence tomography
    Abstract  Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a novel light-based imaging modality for application in the coronary circulation. Compared to conventional intravascular ultrasound, OCT has a ten-fold higher image resolution. This advantage has seen OCT successfully applied in the assessment of atherosclerotic plaque, stent apposition, and tissue coverage, heralding a new era in intravascular coronary imaging. The present article discusses the diagnostic value of OCT, both in cardiovascular research as well as in potential clinical application. The unparalleled high image resolution and strong contrast between the coronary lumen and the vessel wall structure enable fast and reliable image interpretation. OCT makes ...
