Computational Innovations

Noninvasive fractional flow reserve derived from
CT (FFRCT). FFRCT ≤0.80 in the left anterior
descending artery (red) suggests hemodynamically
significant stenosis.

Emerging computational tools including 3D visualization, machine learning, and computational fluid dynamics may help identify those patients are at greatest risk.
