HeartFlow: Disrupting The Diagnostic Paradigm In Cardiology
Most current cardiac diagnostic imaging tests are highly inexact, relying heavily on clinicians' observations. HeartFlow is adapting advanced computer modeling to cardiology to produce a precise, predictive, noninvasive diagnostic that doubles as a treatment planning tool. The test could eliminate unnecessary procedures for patients and save the system money, but is that what interventionalists want?

HeartFlow anticipates rolling out its computed tomography-based coronary fractional flow reserve software (FFRCT) in the U.S. very soon, following an imminent FDA decision on the system. The firm hopes its cloud-based software system, which relies on advanced computational fluid dynamics algorithms and CT imaging, will offer an enhancement on catheter-based FFR to interventional cardiologists.
