1. Characterization of Coronary Atherosclerotic Plaque by Dual-Source Computed Tomography: Comparison with Optical Coherence Tomography

    Background: Dual-source computed tomography (DSCT) is able to non-invasively visualize coronary artery with a high temporal and spatial resolution, and is expected to assess the tissue characters of the coronary atherosclerotic plaque (ASP). Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a newly developed intravascular imaging modality with the highest spatial resolution of 10µm among clinically available modalities, and it can differentiate the pathohistological changes occurring in coronary ASP, including rupture-prone vulnerable plaque. Objective: To investigated the ability of DSCT for the assessment of the coronary ASP characteristics in the comparison with OCT. Methods: In 7 patients with acute coronary syndrome, both DSCT ...
