In India, the use of invasive physiological indices and intracoronary imaging technologies for percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) optimization principally occurs in the research setting with limited penetration in real-world clinical practice. Hence, there was a need to develop a position statement to provide guidance for adoption of intravascular imaging in routine clinical practice in India. As the first step, a multiple-choice questionnaire was provided to 25 leading interventional cardiologists in India to understand the use of intravascular imaging techniques in clinical practice. The collated survey results were evaluated along with literature evidence, clinical tips, and techniques at a scientific meeting. The position statement elaborated here comprises expert opinions and recommendations that will help the interventional cardiology community to understand the role of intravascular imaging and enhance the appropriate adoption of intravascular imaging into routine practice in India to optimize clinical outcomes for patients with coronary artery disease undergoing PCI.

Key words: Intravascular imaging, percutaneous coronary intervention, diagnostic imaging, optical coherence tomography, intravascular ultrasound, intravascular imaging in India
