OCT is an imaging technique that uses low-coherence light to capture micrometer-resolution, two- and three-dimensional images from within optical scattering media (e.g., biological tissue)
It is an imaging tool used in angioplasty to give precise results and to prevent complications.
This imaging method helps the cardiologist to use proper size of stent and to see the details of the stent to the level of 200 microns so that all the complications related to stent opposition can be avoided.
