Paper Abstract

A miniature integrated optical coherence tomography (OCT) - ultrasound (US) probing system for real-time intravascular imaging has been developed. The outer diameter of the integrated probe is 0.69 mm, which is small enough for imaging in human coronary arteries. This probe, which has high resolution and deep tissue penetration, is designed to identify vulnerable atherosclerotic plaques in coronary arteries. The first in vivo images of a rabbit abdominal aorta obtained by the integrated OCT-US probe are presented.
