Most Popular Cardiology Technology Content in July 2018

CT-FFR example showing heavily calcified coronary arteries on CT that did not have hemodynamically significant impact on blood flow.

FFR-CT was by far the hottest cardiac technology topic on DAIC in July. Eight of the top 20 pieces of content were about or mention FFR-CT. This image shows an example of the image-based technology that noninvasively assesses coronary fractional flow reserve (FFR) for the entire coronary tree. The CT image on the left shows two heavily calcified coronary arteries, but the FFR-CT analysis shows there is not a significant impact on hemodynamics, so the patient does not need revascularization.
