    Histogram‐Based Standardization of Intravascular Optical Coherence Tomography Images Acquired from Different Imaging Systems

    Purpose Intravascular optical coherence tomography (OCT) is widely used for analysis of the coronary artery disease. Its high spatial resolution allows for visualization of arterial tissue components in detail. There are different OCT systems on the market, each of which produces data characterized by its own intensity range and distribution. These differences should be taken into account for the development of image processing algorithms. In order to overcome this difference in the intensity range and distribution, we developed a framework for matching intensities based on the exact histogram matching technique. Methods In our method, the key step for using the ...
