HeartFlow Analysis creates a personalized 3D model of the coronary arteries and analyzes the impact that blockages have on blood flow noninvasively.  So, in addition to the anatomical information provided by the CT angiogram, important functional information can also be obtained.

After the Coronary CT angiogram is performed, the data is uploaded via secure interface to HeartFlow for analysis.  Powerful computer algorithms solve millions of  complex equations to assess the impact of impeded blood flow within the coronary arteries (FFR-CT).  A color coded 3D model is generated that aids clinicians in determining, vessel-by-vessel, if sufficient blood is reaching the heart.

ERMI offers Non-Invasive FFR-CT via a standard Coronary CT Angiogram and post-processing from HeartFlow.  Patients and doctors interested in the exam can call us at 212-288-1575 for more information or send an e-mail to HeartFlow@EastRiverImaging.com.
