Paper Abstract

We previously presented a method to fabricate phantoms of normal coronary arteries. This method allows the deposition of multiple layers on a tubular structure, each layer replicating optical and mechanical properties of coronary artery layers. We now present an improved method to produce phantoms of arteries affected by atherosclerosis. The method now includes techniques to introduce structures that mimics the OCT signature of a calcification and of a lipid pool.
