    Calcified Nodule Mimicking Red Thrombus on Optical Coherence Tomography

    The single case report by Hao et al. 1 describing the unique pathological microstructure of a calcified nodule (CN) in an 89-year-old woman dying of congestive heart failure provides unique clues to advance our ability to interpret the images provided by intracoronary diagnostic techniques. The beauty of this report is that a detailed pathological analysis of the CN was combined with corresponding intravascular ultrasound (IVUS), optical coherence tomography (OCT), and coronary angioscopy findings. Of note, this CN was not complicated because it was completely covered by a continuous endothelial layer and had no trace of any residual superficial thrombus. Interestingly ...
