In swine with and without diabetes mellitus fed a fast-food diet:
• OCT, NIRS, CCTA, vascular function testing, and histology can be consecutively and longitudinally performed to assess gradual coronary atherosclerosis development
• OCT and NIRS enabled detailed assessment of early coronary atherosclerosis development, whereas CCTA was not able to detect discrete early atherosclerotic changes.
• OCT, NIRS, vascular function testing, and histology demonstrated no differences in early atherosclerosis development.
