Bring Science to Your Practice at Nuclear Cardiology Today: Best Practices for Today, Innovations for Tomorrow

Join ASNC for 2½ days of in-depth, case-based training to help you lead your Nuclear Cardiology team in today's rapidly evolving healthcare environment. “Nuclear Cardiology Today” Program Co-directors Dennis A. Calnon, MD, MASNC, and David G. Wolinsky, MD, MASNC, and a cadre of expert faculty will help you identify opportunities to improve daily operations in your lab. You'll take home new information for improving patient care, enhancing efficiencies, reducing costs, streamlining administrative processes and adapting to the new performance-evaluation and reimbursement models. 
“Nuclear Cardiology Today” delivers in-depth and in-person learning, leveraging the program's intimate, collegial format to encourage ongoing exchange between participants and faculty, on-the-spot knowledge sharing, and dedicated time for attendees to quiz speakers about how they would address specific challenges. “That's my favorite part of ‘Nuclear Cardiology Today,'” says Dr. Calnon. “When an attendee stands up and says, ‘What about this experience I had in my lab?' and everyone participates to arrive at solutions. It's case-based learning at its best.”  

“Nuclear Cardiology Today” is also the perfect venue for in-depth discussion of the big challenges that all nuclear cardiology professionals are facing, says Dr. Wolinsky. “This is a course with layers,” he says. “You come away with a better understanding of the big themes, which then enables you to analyze and address what you're doing—or not doing—at your own program.” 



Attendees will focus on these and other key questions: 
  • What are the best nuclear cardiology practices today? And how should we assess and improve our program? 
  • What are the latest technological advances? Which technologies should my team invest in immediately vs. put on the wish list? 
  • Who are the right patients for radionuclide imaging? Are we making the best choices for each patient?  
  • How can radiation risk be reduced while maintaining quality studies? Is my team's approach on target? 
  • How will recent and forthcoming health policy changes impact care delivery, relationships with referring clinicians and reimbursement? Has my practice taken the necessary steps to ensure we receive optimal reimbursement with minimal administrative burden? 
“Nuclear Cardiology Today” convenes April 21-23, 2017, in Chicago. It is the only in-depth, in-person nuclear cardiology course available this spring from a medical society, so register yourself and your team now.  See you in Chicago!
