  • Figure 1 (A) Diagnostic CAG demonstrating multiple linear filling defects in the mid-RCA. (B-D, F) Cross-sectional and longitudinal OCT imaging of the RCA showing a honeycomb-like structure with multiple cavities of various sizes. (E) Three-dimensional OCT imaging demonstrating multiple cavities (asterisks). (G) CAG demonstrating severe stenosis in the proximal LAD. (H-M) Cross-sectional and longitudinal OCT imaging of the LAD showing plaque erosion with intraluminal thrombus. CAG = coronary angiography; LAD = left anterior descending artery; OCT = optical coherence tomography; RCA = right coronary artery.
