    Catastrophic Thrombus Formation During Optical Coherence Tomography

    OCT is an in vivo light-based imaging modality for evaluation the coronary artery microstructure. Because the resolution of OCT imaging is higher than that of IVUS, its application in research is expanding. In particular, attempts to detect vulnerable plaques in vivo with OCT imaging and studies of delicate interaction between vessel wall and stent struts, as well as neointima growth, are actively ongoing. Unlike IVUS, however, OCT has a limitation in that it needs to create a blood-free zone.
