Non-invasive assessment of stable chest pain patients is a critical determinant of resource utilization and clinical outcomes. Increasingly coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA) with selective CCTA-derived fractional flow reserve (FFRCT) is being used. The ADVANCE Registry, is a large prospective examination of using a CCTA and FFRCT diagnostic pathway in real-world settings, with the aim of determining the impact of this pathway on decision-making, downstream invasive coronary angiography (ICA), revascularization, and major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE).
