Paper Outline


Comparative analysis of stent design and vessel tissue performance through the novel application of OCT imaging and kinematic analysis.





A brief overview of current imaging modalities and a summary of kinematic analysis and its basic components




Application of OCT imaging modalities in evaluating implanted stents precisely and within an in-vivo environment (not explanted).  Also, an emphasis on ability of OCT images to highlight stent deformation and vessel inflammation
