OCT is an intravascular imaging modality with the potential to play an integral role in the daily cath lab routine. Information acquired by OCT is crucial in preprocedural planning, while OCT can be used to assess acute postprocedural result, guiding the performance or deferral of further intervention. Recently introduced technological developments providing a spatial co-registration of the OCT findings with the angiographic image can enable the operator to use this information for procedural guidance in an easy, quick and reliable manner. The adaptation of such imaging-guided strategies can aid decision-making in everyday practice while helping the optimisation of the procedural result.
