Morphologic Characterization and Quantification of Superficial Calcifications of the Coronary Artery―in Vivo Assessment Using Optical Coherence Tomography―


Coronary calcification is proportional to the extent and severity of atherosclerotic disease, and is a predictor of cardiac events. Furthermore, coronary calcification protruding into the lumen is considered as one type of vulnerable plaque. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) can provide in vivo imaging of the detailed vessel wall structure of the coronary… (More)
