A prototype hybrid catheter device designed for imaging and detection of vascular diseases is introduced. The prototype device integrates a high-resolution optical coherent tomography probe and a high-sensitivity beta detector into a single unit. With this prototype device we demonstrate the feasibility of simultaneous optical coherence tomography imaging and detection of beta particles.
