Bioresorbable devices have gradually matured and there are numerous devices available for preclinical or clinical evaluation. This technology has required new imaging methodology for the assessment of bioresorbable scaffolds (BRSs) since their design, degradation rate, loss of mechanical properties, coating, and drug deliverability may affect safety and efficacy [1,2].,
