Abstract

Optical coherence tomography is a catheter-based imaging modality in heart catheterizations, which provides a significantly higher resolution of intravascular pathology by means of using light as opposed to ultrasound. The applications of this modality may include a detailed assessment of atherosclerotic plaques, stent evaluation including coverage and restenosis and percutaneous coronary intervention optimization. In this article, we provide a review of current literature highlighting the advantages and disadvantages of the use of optical coherence tomography in the catheterization lab.
