Abstract

Coronary stents are the most commonly used treatment in the United States to repair narrowed or weakened arteries. The ability to visualize the stent during the stenting procedure and post-surgery is crucial to correctly place the stent with respect to the vessel stenosis, and to identify its position within the vessel wall. Current imaging modalities suffer from low contrast, resolution and/or unfavorable artifacts that can inhibit correct visualization of the stent in the artery. We demonstrated the effectiveness of a combined intravascular photoacoustic and intravascular ultrasound imaging method for high resolution and sufficient contrast imaging of commercial stents with respect to the vessel wall.

Fig. 1

Photographs of the first vessel mimicking phantom with a stent embedded in the lumen wall. A 5.0 mm inner diameter stainless steel stent was molded 1 mm deep within the vessel wall from the lumen. An 8 mm long region of the stent was left bare outside of the phantom vessel, which was constructed from 8% cross-linked polyvinyl alcohol (PVA).

Fig. 2
Fig. 2

Cut-away diagram of the second vessel phantom consisting of three regions of varying distances between the stent and the vessel wall to model embedded (within the vessel wall), deployed (adjacent to the vessel wall), and malapposed (separate from the vessel wall) stents.

Fig. 3
Fig. 3

(a) Overall IVUS/IVPA imaging system. (b) Ex-vivo prototype photoacoustic imaging setup: the vessel was placed in a water tank and externally illuminated using an optical fiber. The ultrasound imaging catheter is placed inside the lumen and the vessel was rotated incrementally as IVUS/IVPA A-lines were collected. (c) Diagram of the integrated IVUS/IVPA imaging catheter where the IVUS probe and fiber-optical light delivery system are combined for in-vivo intravascular imaging.

Fig. 4
Fig. 4

(a) Ultrasound (IVUS) and (b) photoacoustic (IVPA) cross-sectional images of the stent deployed within the vessel phantom. (c) Overlay of the two images together shows the position of the stent struts with respect to the thickness of the vessel wall.

Fig. 5
Fig. 5

Three-dimensional (3D) reconstruction of the vessel and stent. The 3D image was created by acquiring a stack of cross-sectional images and combining them together. The ultrasound and photoacoustic signals can be displayed with different transparency in the reconstructed image to show the position and shape of the stent within the vessel.

Intravascular ultrasound and photoacoustic and combined IVUS/IVPA images from the three different regions in the stented vessel. (a) Stent embedded within the vessel. (b) Stent adjacent to lumen wall. (c) Stent detached from lumen wall.

Fig. 7

3D-reconstruction of the tri-sectional phantom. Individual cross sections can show the position of the stent within the vessel. (a) Ultrasound 3D reconstruction of the phantom showing the structure of the vessel. (b) Photoacoustic reconstruction of the stent structure which can be used to assess the condition of the stent. (c) Photoacoustic image of the stent overlaid with the ultrasound image of the vessel can show the position of both. (d) Cut-away image of the reconstruction, allowing for accurate assessment of the stent within the vessel.

IVUS/IVPA imaging of vessel-mimicking phantom in transparent (i.e. non-scattering) and scattering medium. Ultrasound images displayed at 55 dB. Photoacoustic images in water and scattering medium displayed at 15 dB and 10 dB, respectively.
