Fractional flow reserve derived from coronary computed tomography angiography (FFRCT) is a non-invasive technique providing lesion-specific FFR calculations based on blood flow simulations using patient-specific three-dimensional geometries. FFRCT has been shown to have a high diagnostic accuracy compared to invasive FFR. Kim et. al. previously showed that FFRCT could be accurately modeled after updates to the three-dimensional geometry, but this was an offline process requiring time-consuming manual geometric changes.
