Rationale, design and goals of the HeartFlow assessing diagnostic value of non-invasive FFR
J Cardiovasc Comput Tomogr
BACKGROUND: Coronary CT angiography (CTA) is a reliable tool for the detection of coronary artery disease (CAD) that conveys significant prognostic information. It does not provide data on the hemodynamic significance of a given lesion, particularly in intermediate-grade stenosis. Fractional flow reserve by CT (FFR
METHODS: The ADVANCE Registry is a multi-center, prospective registry designed to evaluate utility, clinical outcomes and resource utilization following FFR
CONCLUSIONS: The ADVANCE registry is designed to assess the real-world impact of FFR
