    1. Imaging probe with rotatable core

      Imaging probe with rotatable core
      The present disclosure provides for an imaging probe with a rotatable core which allows for rotating imaging assembly that is larger in diameter than the lumen in which the rotatable core resides, as well as methods to construct said probes. The imaging probes are generally elongate flexible imaging catheters for use in cardiovascular procedures.

    2. 30/80 MHz Bidirectional Dual-Frequency IVUS Feasibility Evaluated In Vivo and for Stent Imaging

      30/80 MHz Bidirectional Dual-Frequency IVUS Feasibility Evaluated In Vivo and for Stent Imaging
      Although intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) is an important tool in guiding complex coronary interventions, the resolution of existing commercial IVUS devices is considerably poorer than that of optical coherence tomography. Dual-frequency IVUS (DF IVUS), incorporating a second, higher frequency transducer, has been proposed as a possible method of overcoming this limitation. Although preliminary studies have shown that DF IVUS can produce complementary images, including large-scale morphology and high detail of superficial ...

    4. Conavi Medical Announces Clinical Use of the Novasight Hybrid System with Simultaneous Intravascular Ultrasound (IVUS) and Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) Capabilities

      Conavi Medical Announces Clinical Use of the Novasight Hybrid System with Simultaneous Intravascular Ultrasound (IVUS) and Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) Capabilities
      Conavi TM Medical Inc. (www.conavi.com) is pleased to announce the first clinical use of the Novasight TM Hybrid System, which enables simultaneous imaging of coronary arteries with both intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT). IVUS or OCT are typically used by interventional cardiologists to image coronary anatomy during minimally invasive procedures, such as angiograms, angioplasty and stenting procedures. Drs. Tej Sheth and Natalia Pinilla Echeverri are ...

    5. Intraoperative handheld optical coherence tomography forward-viewing probe: physical performance and preliminary animal imaging

      Intraoperative handheld optical coherence tomography forward-viewing probe: physical performance and preliminary animal imaging
      A prototype intraoperative hand-held optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging probe was developed to provide micron resolution cross-sectional images of subsurface tissue during open surgery. This new ergonomic probe was designed based on electrostatically driven optical fibers, and packaged into a catheter probe in the form factor of clinically accepted Bayonet shaped neurosurgical probes. Optical properties of the probe were measured to have a ~20 μm spot size, 5 mm working ...

    6. Hybrid intravascular ultrasound and optical coherence tomography catheter for imaging of coronary atherosclerosis

      Hybrid intravascular ultrasound and optical coherence tomography catheter for imaging of coronary atherosclerosis
      Objective To demonstrate the feasibility of imaging human coronary atherosclerosis using a novel hybrid intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging catheter. Background IVUS and OCT have synergistic advantages and recent studies involving both modalities suggest the use of a hybrid imaging catheter may offer improved guidance of coronary interventions and plaque characterization. Methods A 1.3 m custom hybrid IVUS-OCT imaging probe was built within a 4F ...

    7. Comprehensive data visualization for high resolution endovascular carotid arterial wall imaging

      Comprehensive data visualization for high resolution endovascular carotid arterial wall imaging
      Carotid angioplasty and stenting is a minimally invasive endovascular procedure that may benefit from in vivo high resolution imaging for monitoring the physical placement of the stent and potential complications. The purpose of this pilot study was to evaluate the ability of optical coherence tomography to construct high resolution 2D and 3D images of stenting in porcine carotid artery. Four Yorkshire pigs were anaesthetized and catheterized. A state-of-the-art optical coherence ...
