    Establishment of an Automated Algorithm Utilizing Optical Coherence Tomography and Micro-Computed Tomography Imaging to Reconstruct the 3-D Deformed Stent Geometry

    Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is the prevalent treatment for coronary artery disease, with hundreds of thousands of stents implanted annually. Computational studies have demonstrated the role of biomechanics in the failure of vascular stents, but clinical studies is this area are limited by a lack of understanding of the deployed stent geometry, which is required to accurately model and predict the stent-induced in vivo biomechanical environment. Herein, we present an automated method to reconstruct the 3-D deployed stent configuration through the fusion of optical coherence tomography (OCT) and micro-computed tomography ( μ CT) imaging data. In an experimental setup, OCT and μ CT ...
