There is only one arm in this study. All patients undergo MSCT, IVUS and OCT.
All patients undergo non-invasive (MSCT) and invasive (IVUS, OCT) imaging
- Accuracy of detection of thrombus with MSCT as compared to IVUS and OCT will be investigated. [ Time Frame: 24 hours ]All imaging methods will be performed in each patient. A 24 hour period is the maximum allowed time gap between MSCT and invasive imaging (OCT/IVUS).
- Accuracy of atherosclerotic plaque characterisation with MSCT as compared to IVUS and OCT will be investigated. [ Time Frame: 24 hours ]A maximum interval of 24 hours between MSCT and IVUS/OCT is allowed in this study.
