Angiography is currently used to assess post-treatment human brain aneurysm healing, which can reveal vessel shape only. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) can reveal the vessel wall structure with high resolution, which has the advantage to assess vessel healing progress. An OCT endovascular catheter was designed and in vivo patients' studies were performed. Flush effect of saline and perfluorodecalin (PFC) were studies in rabbit aorta. The initial results show that OCT is a promising technology to assess post-treatment cerebrovascular diseases.
