    Cutting-edge imaging may provide insight into the functional significance of a stenosis

    A novel study aims to evaluate whether optical coherence tomography (OCT) parameters may predict fractional flow reserve (FFR) values and assess if OCT parameters may predict clinical outcome in patients with negative FFR. The study was presented as late-breaking science at the SCAI 2020 Scientific Sessions Virtual Conference. OCT imaging, a cutting-edge high-resolution intracoronary imaging technique generally used to characterize plaque morphology and to guide optimization of percutaneous coronary intervention, may also provide some insights into the functional significance of a stenosis. "The idea of predicting hemodynamic relevance of coronary lesions from imaging is extremely appealing. In this collaborative study ...
