Imaging. Can FFRCT replace old indices of coronary stenosis severity?

Nat Rev Cardiol. 2014 May;11(5):252-4, PMID: 24736752

The NXT trial supports the value of computational fluid dynamics applied to the digitally reconstructed coronary tree as a noninvasive method of identifying ischaemia-generating stenoses. The results of the study also suggest that old indices of angiographic severity used in clinical practice, such as percent diameter stenosis, might become obsolete.
