    This is interesting and would seem to support the growing recognition that FFR is probably the most robust modality (when compared with QCA, IVUS or OCT) for assessing atherosclerotic lesions of indeterminate severity. The exception may be LMCA disease and ostial coronary lesions (LMCA or otherwise), although I recognise that some practitioners would not draw this distinction and would still rely more heavily on FFR assessment.

      Thank you Anthony. The Pijls link had the wrong target. I have corrected this. The review paper is useful. I agree with your comment.
