HeartFlow Creates a 3D Model of the Heart
Your doctor may order a HeartFlow Analysis. Using your CT scan, the HeartFlow technology creates a personalized digital 3D model of your coronary arteries. With trained specialists and powerful computer algorithms, the HeartFlow Analysis calculates how much each blockage limits your blood flow. The digital, color-coded 3D model of your coronary arteries helps your doctor determine the next step in your treatment plan.
Diagnosing Coronary Artery DiseaseCoronary artery disease (CAD) is the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States. CAD develops when the arteries leading to the heart narrow or become blocked, which may lead to a reduction in blood flow to the heart, causing chest pain, heart attacks and death. Despite being the most common form of heart disease, many of the non-invasive tests available today have low accuracy rates in detecting the disease. The HeartFlow Analysis test provides a personalized 3D model of your coronary arteries that shows how each blockage impacts blood flow to your heart. This detailed information helps your doctor determine the next step in your treatment plan.
