We demonstrate intravascular optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging with frame rate up to 3.2 kHz (192,000 rpm scanning). This was achieved by using a custom-built catheter in which the circumferential scanning was actuated by a 1.0 mm diameter synchronous motor. The OCT system, with an imaging depth of 3.7 mm (in air), is based on a Fourier domain mode locked laser operating at an A-line rate of 1.6 MHz. The diameter of the catheter is 1.1 mm at the tip. Ex vivo images of human coronary…

A Micromotor Catheter for Intravascular Optical Coherence Tomography
TLDR
A new form of intravascular optical coherence tomography (IV-OCT) that allows the extremely fast acquisition of high-resolution images of the coronary arteries that is triggered by the electrocardiogram of the subject, and can scan a coronary artery in the phase of the heartbeat where the heart is at rest.
Simultaneous Morphological and Flow Imaging Enabled by Megahertz Intravascular Doppler Optical Coherence Tomography
TLDR
The first simultaneously recorded 3D morphological images and Doppler flow profiles are presented, achieved using a single OCT pullback dataset, and flow pattern estimation and three-dimensional structural reconstruction of entire coronary artery are achieved.
High frame-rate intravascular optical frequency-domain imaging in vivo.
TLDR
High frame-rate intravascular OFDI in vivo is demonstrated, acquiring images at a rate of 350 frames per second and three-dimensional volume-rendering showed greatly enhanced visualization of tissue microstructure and stent struts relative to what is provided by conventional intrav vascular imaging speeds.

TLDR
A new form of intravascular optical coherence tomography (IV-OCT) is developed that allows the ex- tremely fast acquisition of high-resolution images of the coro- nary arteries, and leads to much better image quality by eliminating cardiac motion artefacts and undersampling.

TLDR
The OFDI imaging is feasible both before and after stenting and has a promising safety profile, and the OFDI provided clear high resolution images and robust lumen measurements.

TLDR

The diagnostic value of OCT is discussed, both in cardiovascular research as well as in potential clinical application, as the tool of choice in all clinical scenarios where angiography is limited by its nature as a two-dimensional luminogram.
Future Directions in Intravascular Ultrasound
TLDR
Intravascular ultrasound imaging requires both a small transducer assembly and catheter delivery system with optimal flexibil‐ ity and steerability and, due to the curved trajectory of the catheter tube in the vascular system, a complicated frictional interaction will occur.
