1. America wakes up to 3-D human coronary artery imaging

    Dr. Tim Johnson, Medical Editor for ABC’s Good Morning America show, said he is “amazed” by the “unbelievable imagery” enabled by optical frequency-domain imaging (OFDI), an advance over optical coherence tomography (OCT) that is giving researchers their first-ever detailed look at the interior of human coronary arteries. Johnson featured the technique recently, following its presentation in the journal JACC: Cardiovascular Imaging. “We expect to see commercial devices available in a one- to two
