JIM 2020: QFR and OFR — Dr Emanuele Barbato

Prof Emanuele Barbato (University of Naples, Naples, IT) discusses optical coherence topography (OCT)-based fractional flow reserve (FFR) and Quantitative flow ratio (QFR).
 
Questions:
1. What are QFR and OFR and how do they compare to traditional indices like FFR?
2. Why are these new approaches needed?
3. When should these assessment tools be used?
4. Do we have data to validate these novel techniques?
5. Are you using these in your practice and if so what has been your experience?
