      The Next Innovation in PCI Is Not a Stent: The Value of Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)

      For decades, percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) has largely been guided solely by angiography, despite its well-documented limitations. 1 Angiography offers a two-dimensional view of a three-dimensional structure and does very little to delineate the composition of the coronary artery. Additionally, angiography poorly quantitates the severity and location of calcium, does not provide information about plaque morphology, nor does it provide highly accurate and reproducible lumen sizing. For PCI, the operator is limited by angiography in identifying stent malapposition or under-expansion, edge dissections, or plaque protrusion. In short, we have not been seeing the full story. By providing the highest resolution ...

      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) scans can be used to diagnose and evaluate the effectiveness of various treatments and therapies for patients with Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD), the leading cause of severe visual impairment in the developed world. While there are treatments for some forms of wet AMD there is nothing to help the vast majority of patients suffering from the dry or degenerative form of AMD. One of the major obstacles in the development of an effective treatment is the inability to detect objective criteria that would either herald further progression of the disease or identify aspects that suggest improvement ...
