Diagnostic technology continues to advance, and the CT angiogram fractional flow reserve, or CTFFR test, has proven to be of great value as a non-invasive way to diagnose the underlying cause of chest pain. This test makes it possible to reduce the need for invasive procedures and reach a confident decision about a heart condition and plan the appropriate treatment.
