Intravascular optical coherence tomography measurement of size and apposition of metallic stents.

Abstract

Effect of beam size and catheter position on the apparent size and apposition of metallic stent struts in IVOCT images were examined. Micro-CT data was employed to determine light - stent strut interactions. Simulated results suggest that location of the reflecting regions depend on relative orientation and position of stent struts to the IVOCT beam… (More)
