Optical Coherence Tomography Gives Detailed Look Inside Arteries and Procedures

Our ability to see inside the arteries of vascular disease patients in stunning high resolution before and during stenting procedures can offer a wealth of valuable information. A new study of optical coherence tomography (OCT) confirms the safety and feasibility of this imaging technique in the carotid arteries. However, because of cost issues, OCT still has a long road to travel to become widely utilized.
