BACKGROUND The ability of iMap-intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) tissue characterization to detect thin-cap fibroatheroma (TCFA) identified on optical coherence tomography (OCT) has not yet been fully elucidated. METHODSANDRESULTS We evaluated 86 coronary lesions from 73 patients with stable angina pectoris using iMap-IVUS and OCT. We defined OCT-derived TCFA (OCT-TCFA) as lipid-rich plaque with a <65-μm-thick fibrous cap. The external elastic membrane (EEM) cross-sectional area (CSA), lumen… CONTINUE READING
