HeartFlow – analysing your hearts health
We offer the latest medical technology from HeartFlow to tackle heart disease. Coronary heart disease is one of the leading causes of death for men and women in the UK. HeartFlow technology helps prevent unnecessary invasive procedures.
If you suffer from chest pain you could now have access to a test called the HeartFlow FFRCT analysis. HeartFlow is the modern non-invasive way of identifying coronary heart disease.
Supporting the diagnosis and treatment of coronary heart disease
Coronary heart disease develops when the arteries leading to the heart narrow or become blocked. This can reduce blood flow and cause chest pain, heart attacks and even death. It causes 66,000 deaths in the UK each year, and an estimated 2.3 million people in the UK are currently living with the disease.
The HeartFlow FFRCT Analysis uses state-of-the-art data analysis from a coronary computed tomography (CT) scan. This data is used to create a 3D digital model of your coronary arteries. The 3D model helps doctors assess the impact of a blockage on blood flow, which helps them to identify the best treatment option.
The HeartFlow Analysis means there’s no need for unnecessary tests and procedures, which helps doctors to diagnose coronary heart disease and develop a treatment plan for patients quicker.
HeartFlow is a great example of how innovative technology can help improve patient outcomes. It will play an important role in helping doctors to quickly diagnose and develop treatment plans for patients with coronary heart disease and limit the number of invasive procedures associated with the detection of heart problems.
