    Bench-to-bedside success: intravascular optical coherence tomography

    After more than 20 years of academic research and industrial development, optical coherence tomography has found a new home in the interventional cardiology suite. If one were to ask a physician to describe an ideal medical imaging technology, the resulting wish list might include high resolution, high sensitivity, and rapid acquisition speeds, all delivered at low cost with minimal risk to the patient in a platform that is simple and easy to use. Neglect any one of these requirements, and the technology in question might at best be relegated to a niche research role. Since its invention in 1991 by ...
