<br />Accurate assessment of atherosclerotic plaque characteristics and the subsequent tailoring of optimal therapy holds great promise for preventing acute coronary syndromes (ACS) and life-threatening sequelae 1. Combined use of optical coherence tomography (OCT) and intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) was proposed as a potential method for accurate assessment of plaque characteristics and vulnerability (2,). However, significant challenges remain in trying to adapt an integrated OCT-IVUS system for clinical applications. We report here a fully integrated intracoronary OCT-IVUS imaging technique to visualize atherosclerotic plaque in living animals and human coronary arteries from cadavers with high resolution and deep penetration capability simultaneously.<br />
