OCT Atlas app – The second edition is out!
Clinical Atlas of Intravascular Optical Coherence Tomography
Developed specifically for the iPad, The Clinical Atlas of OCT offers a rapid and interactive guidance to a systematic and scientifically critical interpretation of OCT images for interventional cardiologists, pathologists, and other physicians, technicians, trainees and research staff.
Supported by an unrestricted educational grant from
The Clinical Atlas of Intravascular Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is the first comprehensive educational tool devoted exclusively to intravascular OCT. The iPad Atlas of OCT provides high-quality images in agreement with international consensus presented in an interactive and educative manner covering all emerging topics in the field.
This highly educational content is written by an academic team of international well-renowned experts and key opinion leaders within the field of intracoronary imaging and pathology.
The second edition of the Clinical Atlas of Intravascular OCT is divided in 12 sections offering the following contents:
- Principles of OCT
- Artefacts with OCT
- Stent and scaffold visualisation by OCT
- Stent thrombosis
- Principles of OCT-guided PCI
- Quantitative and qualitative analysis of OCT findings
- Emerging methods to enhance OCT
- OCT in the non-coronary circulation
- How to perform OCT

- The OCT Atlas App is a tool that will enable you to optimise the use of the technology and draw appropriate conclusions. To give you a more precise idea of how it can facilitate your clinical practice on a daily basis, take a look at these two figures extracted from the following section of the app: Section 12 - Chapter 12.1 – How to perform OCT with the Abbott Vascular system and Chapter 12.2 – Practical guide to using the Terumo OFDI system

" The OCT information is displayed on a common output screen with the information presented in different views (Figure 3): 1) the “angio co-registration” view is found on the upper left; 2) the OCT “cross-sectional” view on the upper right; 3) the “lumen profile” view in the middle; and 4) the OCT “longitudinal” view at the bottom. With respect to the angio co-registration, this feature synchronises the OCT pullback with the angiogram, where the mid radiopaque marker is used to mark out the location of the OCT lens on the angiogram during image acquisition. This is particularly helpful for translating the OCT-defined location of landing zones to the angiogram during OCT-guided stent implantation."

“The thickness measurement function works to measure either the thickness of tissue overlying the stent or the distance from the endoluminal surface of the stent to the luminal contour (i.e., incomplete stent apposition [ISA] distance). A line between the centre of gravity and the stent strut selected (by operators) is automatically created by the software. Then, the distance between the selected stent strut and lumen contour is measured as a thickness of the tissue (positive value) or an ISA distance (negative value)”
This extract is just one of over 500 high-resolution interpreted images that are included in the app. Many others cover an extensive number of topics and will prove key to providing the best care possible for your patients.
