FFR Technologies

This channel includes news and new technology innovations for fractional flow reserve (FFR) wires, catheters and systems used to measure blood flow across a coronary lesion to determine if a stent is needed or if the plaque stenosis can be treated medically. The section includes iFR, instantaneous wave-free ratio, systems used in the cath lab and noninvasive FFR technologies including computed tomography-FFR. This is also referred to as CT-FFR or FFR-CT.
