    Fusion of X-ray angiography and optical coherence tomography for coronary flow simulation

    In conclusion, this thesis proposes a new approach for reconstruction of coronary artery and the implanted BRS by fusion of OCT and X-ray angiography to analyze intracoronary ESS in vivo. The studies conducted in this thesis demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed approach to analyze the detailed local coronary hemodynamics in patients, including the SS patterns after BRS implantation in coronary bifurcations. We observed that in vivo assessment of ESS was closely related to: (1) reconstruction of the side branches; (2) reconstruction of the BRS; (3) patient-specific flow; (4) post-processing portion size in which ESS was calculated. Based on these ...
