Three-dimensional optical coherence tomography rendering has been suggested as a method providing additive information for the assessment of the result of percutaneous coronary intervention. However, rendering of such models is very time-consuming and cannot be performed online during the intervention. We present a case in which a new method for 3-dimensional rendering of optical coherence tomography images helped visualize the stent-vessel wall interaction, providing useful information that discouraged further intervention.
