    Unrestricted utilization of frequency domain optical coherence tomography in coronary interventions

    Frequency domain optical coherence tomography (FD-OCT) has shown promise to evaluate coronary devices in clinical trials, however, little is known about its application in clinical practice. This prospective, single center initiative planned for 100 % FD-OCT utilization in all patients undergoing coronary interventions during a 60-day period. Operators pre-specified the planned intervention based on angiography alone. FD-OCT success was defined as acquisition of good quality images enabling adequate quantification of vessel dimensions and lesion/percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) assessment. Impact on management occurred when angiography-based planning was altered based on FD-OCT data. There were 297 FD-OCT acquisitions performed in 155 vessels ...
