FNNDSC Lecture Series with Dr. Ajay Gopinath

Date/Time: Wednesday, December 9th 10:00 am – 11:00 am

Title: Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT): Current state of the art and future trends in using OCT for interventional cardiology


Abstract:

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is used in Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI or Angioplasty) procedures to aid in diagnosis and treatment planning. OCT provides high resolution images of the coronary artery and can help interventional cardiologists visualize plaque morphology with high resolution during their PCI procedure. This talk will focus on the current state of the art in OCT for intravascular imaging of the coronary arteries. It will look at the latest trends in clinical data and at future technology trends in AI and Machine Learning that can be applied to OCT images to assist PCI procedures.
