The role of change in fractional flow reserve derived from CT (FFRCT) across coronary stenoses (ΔFFRCT) in guiding downstream testing in patients with stable coronary artery disease (CAD) is unknown. Aim of this study was to investigate the incremental value of ΔFFRCT in predicting early revascularization and improving efficiency of catheter laboratory utilization.
