OCT Imaging Best to Determine Stent Size?

from MedPage Today

Using optical coherence tomography (OCT) to guide percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) didn't lead operators to undersize stents compared with intravascular ultrasound (IVUS), the randomized ILUMIEN III: OPTIMIZE PCI study found. With a standardized OCT strategy for stent sizing based on preintervention OCT measurements of external elastic lamina, to overcome the problem of incomplete vessel wall visualization, minimum stent area was comparable for OCT — as for IVUS-guided procedures in the cath lab. more
