    Blood flow velocity measurement by endovascular Doppler optical coherence tomography

    Blood flow velocity and volumetric flow measurements are important parameters for assessment of the severity of stenosis and the outcome of interventional therapy. However, feasibility of intravascular flow measurement using a rotational catheter based phase resolved Doppler optical coherence tomography (DOCT) is difficult. Motion artefacts induced by the rotating optical imaging catheter, and the radially dependent noise background of measured Doppler signals are the main challenges encountered. In this study, a custom-made data acquisition system and developed algorithms to remove non-uniform rotational distortion (NURD) induced phase shift artefact by tracking the phase shift observed on catheter sheath. The flow velocity ...
