Abstract

Abstract Cardiovascular disease is associated with a high
burden of mortality secondary to acute coronary events.
Assessment for vulnerable plaque and an understanding of
the etiology of stent failure by intravascular imaging may
facilitate a greater understanding of the underlying processes
responsible for adverse clinical outcomes and guide future
therapy. This review focuses on the role of optical coherence
tomography in tissue characterization and highlights future
advances within the field providing potential enhancement of
image interpretation.
