      New Research Finds Abbott's Optical Coherence Tomography Imaging Changed Treatment Decisions in 88% of Artery Blockages

      Abbott (NYSE: ABT ) today announced new data from the company's LightLab Initiative that showed optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging significantly changes how physicians decide to treat a vessel compared to traditional angiography by providing physicians improved visualization within a patient's blood vessels. Data from the study revealed physicians altered their treatment strategy in 88% of coronary artery blockages based on new information provided by OCT. Using laser technology, OCT captures high-resolution images inside a patient's arteries, displaying the type and severity of disease in the vessel, as well as enabling more accurate measurements to determine how the ...
