    Fusiform Appearance of Myocardial Bridging Detected by OCT

    Myocardial bridging (MB) is characterized by epicardial coronary artery tunneling through the myocardium, with angiographic “milking” and an intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) “half-moon” echolucent (1) . Optical coherence tomography (OCT), a light-based technique, can provide unprecedented in vivo imaging of coronary vessel wall structure, especially of intima and plaque composition, with a high resolution of 10 μm. So far, there are no data on visualization of MB using OCT.
