An example of FFR-CT imaging from Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, Mich. The left image shows a 3D generated image of the coronary tree from a CT scan evaluated with computational fluid dynamics to determine the FFR numbers. It shows a severe restriction of the left main artery which requires a stent to revacularize. The image on the right is a comparison with the invasive angiogram from the cath lab prior to stenting.
