PMID 27085447

Abstract

The goal of this study was to assess the real-world clinical utility of fractional flow reserve (FFR) derived from coronary computed tomography angiography (FFR FFR We reviewed the complete diagnostic work-up of nonemergent patients referred for coronary computed tomography angiography over a 12-month period at Aarhus University Hospital, Denmark, including all patients with new-onset chest pain with no known CAD and with intermediate-range coronary lesions (lumen reduction, 30% to 70%) referred for FFR Among 1,248 patients referred for computed tomography angiography, 189 patients (mean age 59 years; 59% male) were referred for FFR FFR
