Coronary CT angiography (CTA) is an established noninvasive method for visualization of coronary artery disease. However, coronary CTA lacks physiological information; thus, it does not permit differentiation of ischemia-causing lesions. Recent advances in computational fluid dynamic techniques applied to standard coronary CTA images allow for computation of fractional flow reserve (FFR), a measure of lesion-specific ischemia. The diagnostic performance of computed FFR (FFRCT) compared with invasively measured FFR is not yet fully established.
