Intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and optical coherence tomography (OCT) have been established as important diagnostic and guidance tools for percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) procedures1. Sequential use of the two modalities might overcome the inherent limitations of each technology; however, the potential risks of complications and cost are hard to ignore. Hybrid IVUS-OCT systems can overcome the limitations associated with each technology and integrate the advantages of both modalities. In 2018, a hybrid IVUS-OCT system for clinical application was reported for the first time2. Recently, a novel hybrid imaging system was approved for clinical use (PANOVISON; Panovision Co., Ltd), allowing synchronous ...
