Abstract

In this document, the methods for the quantitative measurement and morphological assessment of optical coherence tomography (OCT)/optical frequency domain imaging images (OFDI) are briefly summarized. The focus is on the clinical application of OCT/OFDI to guide percutaneous coronary interventions.

Keywords
