    A modified frequency domain optical coherence tomography procedure for imaging severely stenotic coronary artery lesions

    Aims: This proof-of-concept study aimed to investigate the clinical feasibility of a modified frequency domain optical coherence tomography (FD-OCT) procedure for imaging severely stenotic coronary artery lesions. Methods and results: In total, 46 patients in whom clear images were unobtainable using conventional FD-OCT examination were consecutively enrolled in this study. Then, they were randomly divided into two groups: group A (FD-OCT examination using the new modified procedure, n=23), and group B (FD-OCT examination using a previously described procedure, the Yamaguchi method, n=23). The procedure success was 100% in group A and 86.96% in group B. Clear images ...
