Abstract

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a novel, catheter-based, invasive imaging system based on near-infrared light with high image resolution (15-20 μm). The system allows for unparalleled imaging of the coronary artery lumen, plaque characterization, assessment of coronary stent strut apposition, neointimal coverage, vascular proliferative response, complications such as focal dissection or thrombus formation, and insight into the time course of stent endothelization. This review will describe the currently available developments in OCT technology and its application in both the clinical and research arenas.
