The objective of this article is to review the role of intracoronary imaging in the management of patients with spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD). In this review article, we discuss the types of intracoronary imaging including intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and optical coherence tomography (OCT) and their relative strengths and weaknesses. Additionally, we discuss in detail the findings on IVUS and OCT and how these modalities can be used for optimization of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in SCAD cases.
