      Hybrid intravascular imaging: recent advances, technical considerations, and current applications in the study of plaque pathophysiology
      Cumulative evidence from histology-based studies demonstrate that the currently available intravascular imaging techniques have fundamental limitations that do not allow complete and detailed evaluation of plaque morphology and pathobiology, limiting the ability to accurately identify high-risk plaques. To overcome these drawbacks, new efforts are developing for data fusion methodologies and the design of hybrid, dual-probe catheters to enable accurate assessment of plaque characteristics, and reliable identification of high-risk lesions. Today ...

    2. Feasibility and methodology of optical coherence tomography imaging of human intracranial aneurysms: ex vivo pilot study

      Feasibility and methodology of optical coherence tomography imaging of human intracranial aneurysms: ex vivo pilot study
      Rupture of intracranial aneurysm is a common cause of subarachnoid hemorrhage. An aneurysm may undergo microscopic morphological changes or remodeling of the vessel wall prior to rupture, which could potentially be imaged. In this study we present methods of tissue sample preparation of intracranial aneurysms and correlation between optical coherence tomography imaging and routine histology. OCT has a potential future in the assessment of microscopic features of aneurysms, which may ...
