This series on “Intracoronary Imaging” is edited by Dr. Dennis T. L. Wong. BSc (Med), MBBS (Hons), MD, PhD, Monash Cardiovascular Research Centre, Department of Medicine (Monash Medical Centre), Monash University and Monash Heart, Monash Health, Clayton, Australia.

This special series on intracoronary imaging has been arranged to provide our readers an overview of all aspects of intracoronary imaging. The basics, fundamentals and evidence on IVUS, OCT and NIRS are covered in detail in this series. This is followed by a summary of how IVUS and OCT can be incorporated into clinical practice as well as translational research. The aim of this series is to equip our readers with knowledge and confidence on how to incorporate intracoronary imaging into routine clinical practice and ultimately improve patient outcome.
