Plaque burden (PB) measurement using intravascular optical coherence tomography (IVOCT) is currently thought to be inferior to intravascular ultrasound (IVUS). We developed an automated IVOCT image processing algorithm to enhance the external elastic lamina (EEL) contour. Thus, we investigated the accuracies of standard IVOCT and an IVOCT enhancement algorithm for measuring PB using IVUS as the reference standard.

Bladder cancer is the fourth most common malignancy in men and a considerable disease burden globally. Multiple studies have focused on the accuracy of optical coherence tomography for bladder cancer ...
Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a coronary artery imaging technique with high resolution. Second-generation frequency-domain OCT (FD-OCT) technology allows safer and faster clinical application ...
Optical coherence tomography can provide high-resolution imaging of the human heart valuable for treating cardiovascular disease. However, comprehensive optical coherence tomography imaging data in th...
Significant macrophages infiltration in advanced atherosclerotic plaques promotes acute coronary events. Hence, the clinical imaging of macrophage content in coronary atherosclerotic plaques could pot...
Arteriosclerosis of the vascular system is associated with many accompanying diseases. Especially cerebral arteriosclerosis is a main risk factor for ischemic strokes. We want to verify the practicabi...
Both intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and optical coherence tomography (OCT) are standardly used and have been extensively studied separately to guide percutaneous coronary intervention and...
Many trials suggested that lipid lowering therapy could significantly reduce cardiovascular events. Enhancing stability of vulnerable plaque is probably the main reason by which statins re...

An imaging method using LASERS that is used for mapping subsurface structure. When a reflective site in the sample is at the same optical path length (coherence) as the reference mirror, the detector observes interference fringes.
Measure of the burden of disease using the disability-adjusted-life-year (DALY). This time-based measure combines years of life lost due to premature mortality and years of life lost due to time lived in states of less than full health. The metric was developed to assess the burden of disease consistently across diseases, risk factors and regions.
The use of light interaction (scattering, absorption, and fluorescence) with biological tissue to obtain morphologically based information. It includes measuring inherent tissue optical properties such as scattering, absorption, and autofluorescence; or optical properties of exogenous targeted fluorescent molecular probes such as those used in optical MOLECULAR IMAGING, or nontargeted optical CONTRAST AGENTS.

An imaging technique that combines a POSITRON-EMISSION TOMOGRAPHY (PET) scanner and a CT X RAY scanner. This establishes a precise anatomic localization in the same session.
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
