Noninvasive FFR derived from coronary CT angiography in the management of coronary artery disease: technology and clinical update

After a decade of clinical use of coronary computed tomographic angiography (CCTA) to evaluate the anatomic severity of coronary artery disease, new methods of deriving functional information from CCTA have been developed. These methods utilize the anatomic information provided by CCTA in conjunction with computational fluid dynamics to calculate fractional… CONTINUE READING
