    Three-Dimensional Fourier-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography Imaging: Advantages and Future Development

    Traditionally, intravascular imaging methods display the coronary anatomy in two dimensions, through a series of consecutive cross-sectional tomographic images. The physician is then required to mentally reassemble these images in order to visualize the vascular anatomy and all its complex interactions. The ability to depict the vascular structure with its actual spatial appearance, in three dimensions, is a powerful way to provide an easy, objective, and comprehensive overview of its complex and dynamic anatomy. However, three-dimensional (3D) application of intravascular imaging has been plagued by lack of enough resolution, frequent presence of imaging and motion artifacts and need for extensive ...
