    OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY FOR CORONARY ARTERY DISEASE (Thesis)

    The aim of this thesis was to develop a software pipeline for tissue analysis in IVOCT by systematically addressing different open questions for analysis. In Chapter 2, we report on a first attempt to quantify the correlation between the position of the catheter with respect to the luminal wall and the image intensities. We implemented the Depth-Resolved (DR) model for IVOCT images in Chapter 3. In addition to the attenuation coefficient, we further extended the model to estimate a backscatter term, and proposed an algorithm to exclude the noisy region. For the first time, it was implemented in IVOCT images ...
