    7. First in‐human evaluation of a novel intravascular ultrasound and optical coherence tomography system for intracoronary imaging

      First in‐human evaluation of a novel intravascular ultrasound and optical coherence tomography system for intracoronary imaging
      Aims We evaluated the first in-human performance of a novel hybrid imaging catheter that permits simultaneous and co-registered acquisition of intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and optical coherence tomography (OCT) images. Methods and Results A total of 17 patients undergoing planned percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) were imaged between August 2018 and August 2019. Eleven patients with both pre- and post-PCI IVUS and OCT images were included in the offline image analysis. IVUS ...

    8. Multi-modality intravascular imaging for guiding coronary intervention and assessing coronary atheroma: the Novasight Hybrid IVUS-OCT system

      Multi-modality intravascular imaging for guiding coronary intervention and assessing coronary atheroma: the Novasight Hybrid IVUS-OCT system
      Intravascular imaging has evolved alongside interventional cardiology as an adjunctive tool for assessing plaque pathology and for guiding and optimising percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in challenging lesions. The two modalities which have dominated the field are intravascular ultrasound (IVUS), which relies on sound waves and optical coherence tomography (OCT), relying on light waves. These approaches however have limited efficacy in assessing plaque morphology and vulnerability that are essential for guiding ...

    9. Advances in IVUS/OCT and Future Clinical Perspective of Novel Hybrid Catheter System in Coronary Imaging

      Advances in IVUS/OCT and Future Clinical Perspective of Novel Hybrid Catheter System in Coronary Imaging
      Intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and optical coherence tomography (OCT) have been developed and improved as both diagnostic and guidance tools for interventional procedures over the past three decades. IVUS has a resolution of 100 m with a high tissue penetration and capability of assessing the entire structure of a coronary artery including the external elastic membrane, whereas OCT has a higher resolution of 1020 m to assess endoluminal structures with a ...

    10. 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 ...
