    1. Deep neural networks for A-line-based plaque classification in coronary intravascular optical coherence tomography images

      Deep neural networks for A-line-based plaque classification in coronary intravascular optical coherence tomography images
      We develop neural-network-based methods for classifying plaque types in clinical intravascular optical coherence tomography (IVOCT) images of coronary arteries. A single IVOCT pullback can consist of 500 microscopic-resolution images, creating both a challenge for physician interpretation during an interventional procedure and an opportunity for automated analysis. In the proposed method, we classify each A-line, a datum element that better captures physics and pathophysiology than a voxel, as a fibrous layer ...

    3. Volumetric assessment of lesion severity with optical coherence tomography: relationship with fractional flow reserve

      Volumetric assessment of lesion severity with optical coherence tomography: relationship with fractional flow reserve
      Aims: Frequency-domain optical coherence tomography (FD-OCT) provides a rapid tomographic scan of a coronary vessel, with an accurate reconstruction of its lumen profile. An FD-OCT-based metric that corresponds more closely with physiological significance of lesions may enable more precise guidance of interventional procedures. The aim of this feasibility study was to evaluate a new method for quantifying coronary lesion severity that estimates hyperaemic flow resistance of branched vessel segments imaged ...

      Expert review document part 2: methodology, terminology and clinical applications of optical coherence tomography for the assessment of interventional procedures
      Introduction This document is complementary to an Expert Review Document on Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) for the study of coronary arteries and atherosclerosis.1 The goal of this companion manuscript is to provide a practical guide framework for the appropriate use and reporting of the novel frequency domain (FD) OCT imaging to guide interventional procedures, with a particular interest on the comparison with intravascular ultrasound (IVUS).1–4 Technique for ...

    6. Serial Assessment of Coronary Artery Response to Paclitaxel-Eluting Stents Using Optical Coherence Tomography

      Serial Assessment of Coronary Artery Response to Paclitaxel-Eluting Stents Using Optical Coherence Tomography
      Background—The paucity of longitudinal, serial high-resolution imaging studies has limited our understanding of in vivo arterial response to drug-eluting stents. We sought to investigate the human coronary response to paclitaxel-eluting stent implantation, using serial optical coherence tomography assessments. Methods and Results—Thirty patients with at least 2 significant coronary lesions in different vessels were treated with a paclitaxel-eluting stent. The most severe stenosis (lesion A) was treated at the ...

    8. The impact of an eccentric intravascular ImageWire during coronary optical coherence tomography imaging

      The impact of an eccentric intravascular ImageWire during coronary optical coherence tomography imaging
      Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) provides high-resolution imaging which enables characterisation of atherosclerosis and vascular response to injury, but to ensure optimal analysis, one must realise potential sources of image distortion. We designed a series of analysesl, using coronary stents as a model, to investigate the influence of wire position on OCT-derived vascular images.
