      Plaque burden can be assessed using intravascular optical coherence tomography and a dedicated automated processing algorithm: a comparison study with intravascular ultrasound
      Aims Plaque burden (PB) measurement using intravascular optical coherence tomography (IVOCT) is currently thought to be inferior to intravascular ultrasound (IVUS). We developed an automated IVOCT image processing algorithm to enhance the external elastic lamina (EEL) contour. Thus, we investigated the accuracies of standard IVOCT and an IVOCT enhancement algorithm for measuring PB using IVUS as the reference standard. Methods and results The EEL-enhancement algorithm combined adaptive attenuation compensation, exponentiation ...

    3. Multi-laboratory inter-institute reproducibility study of IVOCT and IVUS assessments using published consensus document definitions

      Multi-laboratory inter-institute reproducibility study of IVOCT and IVUS assessments using published consensus document definitions
      Aims The aim of this study was to investigate the reproducibility of intravascular optical coherence tomography (IVOCT) assessments, including a comparison to intravascular ultrasound (IVUS). Intra-observer and inter-observer variabilities of IVOCT have been previously described, whereas inter-institute reliability in multiple laboratories has never been systematically studied. Methods and results In 2 independent laboratories with intravascular imaging expertise, 100 randomized matched data sets of IVOCT and IVUS images were analysed by ...

    1. The real question is: Can we translate that into a net benefit for the patient? That’s the question that needs to be answered still...We are at the dawn of an imaging revolution...where we will be able to obtain a lot of information from within the artery that wasn’t within our reach before. However, we still don’t know what we are going to be able to do with all that information. Further studies and experience will be needed.
