A small piece from the chapter:
The most widely investigated FCA is Quantitative Flow Ratio (QAngio XA-3D, Medis Medical Imaging System, Leiden, the Netherlands and AngioPlus, Shanghai Pulse Medical Technology Inc., Shanghai, China). QFR is a computation method for calculating FFR, derived from 3D-quantitative coronary angiography (QCA), based on 2 orthogonal angiographic projections of the coronary vessel separated by at least 25º of angulation. Once the vessel has been reconstructed into a 3D model, hemodynamic pressure drops are calculated at consecutive 6 mm segments according to derived friction and turbulence pressure coefficients, and subsequently integrated into the entire analyzed segment.
