1. Optical coherence tomography: clinical applications and the evaluation of DES.

    Optical coherencet tomography (OCT) is a light-based imaging modality that can provide in vivo high-resolution images of the coronary artery. In the last years there has been a continuous technical development that has improved the image quality and has simplified the acquisition procedure in order to spread the clinical applicability of this technique. Due to its high resolution OCT, can be a very valuable tool for the evaluation of the coronary vessel wall, the acute and long-term impact of catheter-based intervention on plaque structure and vessel architecture and the assessment of stents. During stenting, OCT offers the possibility to evaluate ...
