    Assessment of Pulmonary Artery Morphology by Optical Coherence Tomography

    Since its invention, optical coherence tomography (OCT) has been primarily used for the diagnosis of coronary artery disease. A few feasibility studies of OCT to visualise the pulmonary arteries were reported. However, OCT findings in the pulmonary arteries have not been validated using histology as the gold standard. To validate OCT findings for pulmonary arterial imaging, we selected 27 pulmonary arteries from 11 cadavers (6 males, 5 females, mean age 39.6 ± 21.3 years). Comparison of OCT images and histology was performed. Each histological sample was examined using three types of stains, and the quantified results were analysed by ...
