Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The optimum strategy to treat patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) has been under debate. New data show that revascularization guided by fractional flow measurements leads to better outcomes than revascularization guided by arteriography. we call for a paradigm shift in CAD care, with coronary flow measurements by PET as key to diagnosis and clinical decision-making.
