Intravascular Optical Coherence Tomography has been explored as an imaging tool for vessel wall and thrombus characterization. OCT enables a high resolution arterial wall imaging, and light properties allow tissue characterization. It has been proved one of the most valuable imaging modalities for the evaluation of vulnerable plaque and thrombus. OCT has a(More)
Intracoronary Fourier-Domain optical coherence tomography (FD-OCT) enables imaging of the coronary artery within 2–4 seconds, a so far unparalleled speed. Despite such fast data acquisition, cardiac and respiratory motion can cause artefacts due to longitudinal displacement of the catheter within the artery. We studied the influence of longitudinal FD-OCT(More)
HIGHLIGHTS In swine with and without diabetes mellitus fed a fast-food diet: OCT, NIRS, CCTA, vascular function testing, and histology can be consecutively and longitudinally performed to assess gradual coronary atherosclerosis development OCT and NIRS enabled detailed assessment of early coronary atherosclerosis development, whereas CCTA was not able to(More)
