    2. Stent detection methods and imaging system interfaces

      Stent detection methods and imaging system interfaces
      The disclosure relates, in part, to computer-based visualization of stent position within a blood vessel. A stent can be visualized using intravascular data and subsequently displayed as stent struts or portions of a stent as a part of a one or more graphic user interface(s) (GUI). In one embodiment, the method includes steps to distinguish stented region(s) from background noise using an amalgamation of angular stent strut information ...

    3. Abbott Launches First Optical Coherence Tomography Virtual Reality Training Program for Cardiologist

      Abbott Launches First Optical Coherence Tomography Virtual Reality Training Program for Cardiologist
      Abbott today announced the global release of its first virtual reality-based training program designed to change how interventional cardiologists are trained in using optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging technology. The comprehensive new training program incorporates virtual reality (VR) with traditional training techniques to increase experience and expertise in using Abbotts OCT imaging and improve outcomes in patients needing a stent to open clogged arteries. Abbott is expanding its training portfolio ...

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

      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 ...

    6. Systems, methods and apparatus for determining a fractional flow reserve (FFR) based on the minimum lumen area (MLA) and the constant

      Systems, methods and apparatus for determining a fractional flow reserve (FFR) based on the minimum lumen area (MLA) and the constant
      n one aspect, the invention relates to system comprising: a processor configured to receive a first optical coherence tomography (OCT) data set obtained during a pullback of a data collection probe along a first length of a first blood vessel; determine a minimum lumen area disposed along the first length using the first OCT data set; and determine a first FFR value along the first length based on the minimum ...

    7. Intravascular imaging and guide catheter detection methods and systems

      Intravascular imaging and guide catheter detection methods and systems
      In part, the disclosure relates to computer-based methods, devices, and systems suitable for detecting a delivery catheter using intravascular data. In one embodiment, the delivery catheter is used to position the intravascular data collection probe. The probe can collect data suitable for generating one or more representations of a blood vessel with respect to which the delivery catheter can be detected.

    9. Method, apparatus, and system to identify branches of a blood vessel

      Method, apparatus, and system to identify branches of a blood vessel
      In part, the disclosure relates to an automated method of branch detection with regard to a blood vessel imaged using an intravascular modality such as OCT, IVUS, or other imaging modalities. In one embodiment, a representation of A-lines and frames generated using an intravascular imaging system is used to identify candidate branches of a blood vessel. One or more operators such as filters can be applied to remove false positives ...
