GE Healthcare said it is teaming up with HeartFlow in a effort aimed at aiding the fight against coronary artery disease.
The two companies are partnering to make it easier for doctors to obtain the HeartFlow FFRct, a non-invasive technology that makes it easier to diagnose and treat coronary artery disease, a GE Healthcare release said.
Through the partnership, the companies will promote GE Healthcare's computed tomography (CT) scanners and the HeartFlow FFRct.
The HeartFlow FFRct allows medical professionals to upload the results of a coronary CT angiogram into the cloud, and then HeartFlow puts together a digital 3-D model that shows the person's coronary arteries and creates a model on how blockages are affecting coronary blood movement, the release said.
HeartFlow FFRct also allows doctors to create a personalized treatment plan for fighting coronary artery disease.
The companies will initially focus their efforts in U.S., the release said.
