    2. Does spotty calcification attenuate the response of nonculprit plaque to statin therapy?: A serial optical coherence tomography study

      Does spotty calcification attenuate the response of nonculprit plaque to statin therapy?: A serial optical coherence tomography study
      Objectives The aim of this study was to determine if spotty calcification decreases the response of plaque progression to statin therapy. Background Previous studies showed that the presence of spotty calcification is a marker of vulnerable plaque. However, the relationship between spotty calcification and plaque progression is not clear. Methods Ninety-six nonculprit lipid-rich plaques in 69 patients who received serial optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging were included. Plaques were divided ...

    3. EROSION Study (Effective Anti-Thrombotic Therapy Without Stenting: Intravascular Optical Coherence Tomography–Based Management in Plaque Erosion)

      EROSION Study (Effective Anti-Thrombotic Therapy Without Stenting: Intravascular Optical Coherence Tomography–Based Management in Plaque Erosion)
      Background The initial EROSION study (Effective Anti-Thrombotic Therapy Without Stenting: Intravascular Optical Coherence TomographyBased Management in Plaque Erosion) demonstrated that patients with acute coronary syndrome caused by plaque erosion might be stabilized with aspirin and ticagrelor without stenting for 1 month. However, a long-term evaluation of outcomes is lacking. The aim of this study was to assess whether the initial benefit of noninterventional therapy for patients with acute coronary syndrome ...

    6. Calibration and image processing devices, methods, and systems

      Calibration and image processing devices, methods, and systems
      In part, the invention relates to systems and methods of calibrating a plurality of frames generated with respect to a blood vessel as a result of a pullback of an intravascular imaging probe being pullback through the vessel. A calibration feature disposed in the frames that changes between a subset of the frames can be used to perform calibration. Calibration can be performed post-pullback. Various filters and image processing techniques ...

    9. Optical coherence tomography lumen morphology and vascular resistance measurements methods for blood vessel evaluations

      Optical coherence tomography lumen morphology and vascular resistance measurements methods for blood vessel evaluations
      A method and apparatus of automatically locating in an image of a blood vessel the lumen boundary at a position in the vessel and from that measuring the diameter of the vessel. From the diameter of the vessel and estimated blood flow rate, a number of clinically significant physiological parameters are then determined and various user displays of interest generated. One use of these images and parameters is to aid ...
