Purpose of ReviewCoronary artery disease (CAD) is the leading cause of mortality in the United States and is accountable for a significant portion of overall healthcare costs. Non-invasive imaging plays a major role in the modern workup of CAD. This article will educate the reader on the foundations of computed tomography-derived fractional flow reserve (CT-FFR) and provide guidance for its appropriate clinical use.Recent FindingsCoronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA) has high… CONTINUE READING
