The HeartFlow Analysis is an advanced test that assesses coronary artery disease. It shows how each blockage impacts blood flow to your heart.
Your physician and the radiologist will decide if this additional analysis would be helpful.
The Heartflow analysis uses data from your Coronary Artery CT Angiogram and does not require an additional radiologic exam.
How it Works*
Your doctor will order a CT scan to look for blockages. If the scan shows disease, your doctor may order a HeartFlow Analysis.
Using your CT scan, the HeartFlow Analysis creates a computerized 3D model of your coronary arteries. The test does not require another appointment and there is no additional risk to you.
With trained specialists and powerful computers, the HeartFlow Analysis calculates how much each blockage limits your blood flow.
Your doctor receives a digital, color-coded, 3D model of your blood flow. These results give you and your doctor the answers needed to determine the next step in your treatment plan.
