    Feasibility and Safety of the Second-Generation, Frequency Domain Optical Coherence Tomography (FD-OCT): A Multicenter Study

    Abstract: Objectives. This study sought to assess the effectiveness and safety of the second-generation frequency-domain optical coherence tomography (FD-OCT) system. Background. The second-generation FD-OCT was recently developed, with simplified imaging technique and faster acquisition time compared to the first-generation time-domain OCT. However, the safety and effectiveness of the FD-OCT has not been evaluated, and this study was conceived as a pre-approval study for Food and Drug Administration clearance for clinical use in the United States. Methods. A total of 50 patients were enrolled from 3 institutions. Following stent implantation, the FD-OCT was performed with contrast injection through the guiding catheter ...
