REDWOOD CITY, Calif. & SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--HeartFlow, Inc. today announced positive data from a study of the company’s newest-generation non-invasive computed fractional flow reserve FFRCT technology. Results from the HeartFlowNXT study demonstrate that, when compared to standard coronary CT angiography (CT) or invasive coronary angiography (ICA), FFRCT provides a more accurate determination of which arterial blockages are associated with coronary ischemia and which are not, suggesting that FFRCT may aid physicians in making decisions regarding further invasive testing or treatment. The study’s findings were presented today in a First Report Investigation session at the 25th Annual Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) meeting in San Francisco.
