NICE Set to Recommend Device which Uses 3D Models of Blood Vessels to Spot Heart Disease

Provisional recommendations from the NICE medical technology advisory committee show support for the use of a new software which could benefit up to 36,000 patients in England.

The technology uses data taken from standard cardiac CT scans and sends this to a processing centre where virtual 3D models of the patient’s blood vessels are created. The software which is called HeartFlow FFRCT, is then able to identify any areas of narrowing that may require treatment.
