Noninvasive Fractional Flow Reserve Derived from Coronary Computed Tomography Angiography for the Diagnosis of Lesion-specific Ischemia



Noninvasive Fractional Flow Reserve Derived from Coronary Computed Tomography Angiography for the Diagnosis of Lesion-specific Ischemia



Interventional Cardiology Clinics 4(4): 481-489



Fractional flow reserve derived from coronary computed tomography angiography (FFRCT) has emerged as a powerful tool for the assessment of flow-limiting coronary stenoses. To date, FFRCT is the only noninvasive imaging modality for the depiction of lesion-specific ischemia and large prospective multicenter studies have established its high diagnostic value. The nature of FFRCT allows the prediction of functional outcome of coronary stenting, which will expand the role of cardiac computed tomography in the evaluation and management of coronary artery disease.
