    4. Feature Of The Week 10/16/11: The Diagnostic Value of Intracoronary Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)

      Feature Of The Week 10/16/11: The Diagnostic Value of Intracoronary Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)
      This past summer a paper by one of the world's leading clinical research groups in intracoronary OCT was published on the diagnostic value of OCT in intracoronary imaging. Below is a summary of that work. This article discusses the current diagnostic value of OCT, both in cardiovascular research as well as in potential clinical application. OCT generates intracoronary images with unprecedented image resolution, namely a ten-fold higher image resolution ...

    5. Acute Coronary Syndrome in 3 Dimensions: The Culprit Exposed

      Acute Coronary Syndrome in 3 Dimensions: The Culprit Exposed
      A 32-year-old man presented to the emergency department with stuttering chest discomfort. Electrocardiography confirmed transient ST-segment elevations in the inferior leads, which rapidly subsided in the following minutes. By coronary angiography, we found a right dominant coronary system and single-vessel coronary artery disease with haziness in the distal segment of the right coronary artery just before the crux and accompanying TIMI (Thrombolysis In Myocardial Infarction) flow grade 3 (Online Video ...

    6. Invasive coronary imaging in animal models of atherosclerosis

      Invasive coronary imaging in animal models of atherosclerosis
      Experimental disease models have enhanced our understanding of the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis development. For example, insight has been gained into the role of the endothelium, lipids, platelets and inflammation, as well as into potential diagnostic and therapeutic interventions. Moreover, transgenic and knock-out technologies have become a widespread approach and this is a growing field to assess the role of individual genes in vascular biology and pathology. However, atherosclerosis is most ...

    7. The diagnostic value of intracoronary optical coherence tomography

      The diagnostic value of intracoronary optical coherence tomography
      Abstract  Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a novel light-based imaging modality for application in the coronary circulation. Compared to conventional intravascular ultrasound, OCT has a ten-fold higher image resolution. This advantage has seen OCT successfully applied in the assessment of atherosclerotic plaque, stent apposition, and tissue coverage, heralding a new era in intravascular coronary imaging. The present article discusses the diagnostic value of OCT, both in cardiovascular research as well ...

    8. In vivo validation of a novel three-dimensional quantitative coronary angiography system (CardiOp-B™): comparison with a conventional two-dimensional system (CAAS II™) and with special reference to optical coherence tomography

      In vivo validation of a novel three-dimensional quantitative coronary angiography system (CardiOp-B™): comparison with a conventional two-dimensional system (CAAS II™) and with special reference to optical coherence tomography
      Aims: To validate a novel 3-D system (CardiOp-B) and compare the 2-D (CAAS II) and 3-D system in in vivo experimental settigns. The phantom lumen diamters were also assessed ex vivo by optical coherence tomography. The accurace of the 3-D system has not bee appreciated.

    9. Reproducibility of coronary Fourier domain optical coherence tomography: quantitative analysis of in vivo stented coronary arteries using three different software packages.

      Reproducibility of coronary Fourier domain optical coherence tomography: quantitative analysis of in vivo stented coronary arteries using three different software packages.
      Aims: Fourier domain optical coherence tomography (FD OCT) enables imaging of long coronary artery segments within few seconds, employing high data acquisitions, speed and fast automated catheter pullback. However, the reproducibility of these high-speed pullbacks in the clinical situation is unknown. We tested the reproducibility of in vivo, intracoronary FD OCT and assessed the influence of different computer-assisted algorithms on quantitative analysis. Methods and results: In patients undergoing elective coronary ...

    10. Quantitative Ex Vivo and In Vivo Comparison of Lumen Dimensions Measured by Optical Coherence Tomography and Intravascular Ultrasound in Human Coronary Arteries

      Quantitative Ex Vivo and In Vivo Comparison of Lumen Dimensions Measured by Optical Coherence Tomography and Intravascular Ultrasound in Human Coronary Arteries
      Introduction and objectives. The relationship between the lumen dimensions obtained in human coronary arteries using intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and those obtained using optical coherence tomography (OCT) is not well understood. The objectives were to compare the lumen measurement obtained ex vivo in human coronary arteries using IVUS, OCT, and histomorphometry, and in vivo in patients using IVUS and OCT with and without balloon occlusion. Methods. Ex vivo study: the lumen ...
