    1. This is an important step in demonstrating the ability of Volcano's OCT catheter to safely image coronary vessels of human patients and establishing a leadership position in advanced coronary imaging technologies.
    2. The high resolution OCT images provide a glimpse at structural detail not seen before by other imaging modalities. We believe that OCT has the potential to identify thin-cap fibro-atheromas, clearly highlight intraluminal thrombus, and assess the complete healing of novel drug-eluting stent designs. Volcano is committed to exploring the various clinical benefits of our OCT platform through detailed data-driven study design and mutually beneficial partnerships with other therapy companies.
