  • BACKGROUND Fractional flow reserve estimated using computed tomography (FFRCT) might improve evaluation of patients with chest pain. OBJECTIVES The authors sought to determine the effect on cost and quality of life (QOL) of using FFRCT instead of usual care to evaluate stable patients with symptoms suspicious for coronary disease. METHODS Symptomatic patients without known coronary disease were enrolled into 2 strata based on whether invasive or noninvasive diagnostic testing was planned… CONTINUE READING
