Nuclear Cardiology Today: Bringing Value to Your Nuclear Cardiology Lab
April 25 – 27, 2014 | Orlando, FL
Join ASNC for this dynamic nuclear cardiology program on April 25-27 in Orlando, Florida. Prepare for challenges in 2014 by getting in-depth instruction on the latest practices and new applications in heart failure management, SPECT & PET technology updates, the future of Cardio-Oncology, radiation dose reduction, and more! This program provides nuclear cardiology relevant CME hours required by IAC & CBNC, CE credit also available for technologists. Register now!
This program will increase learners’ competence and performance in solving clinical, technical, and practical issues facing nuclear cardiology imaging professionals. Participants will be able to gain competence on procedures that reduce radiation dose, apply appropriate use criteria and guidelines when setting up nuclear cardiology studies, learn the latest advances in software, hardware, new tracers, and new applications to enhance diagnostic confidence as well as the evolving role of multimodality imaging.
All physicians and technologists practicing nuclear cardiology are encouraged to attend this program.
Attendees will increase their knowledge in solving clinical and business issues surrounding imaging. In addition, this unique program will provide a clear understanding of performance on procedures to reduce radiation dose, and strategies on how to apply appropriate use criteria and guidelines when setting-up nuclear cardiology studies. This educational event will also cover:
- Recent advances in nuclear cardiology, including SPECT and PET, and evaluate the use of these advances to improve patient care;
- Methods for radiation reduction in nuclear cardiology – including instrumentation, software and lower radiation imaging protocols;
- How to employ optimal methodology to interpret and report nuclear cardiology studies;
- Ways to evaluate strengths and weaknesses of imaging procedures and how to incorporate these into clinical practice;
- Review and improve interpretation skills in standard and emerging technologies in nuclear cardiology;
- How to select patients for cardiac imaging based on Appropriate Use Criteria (AUC);
- Describe basic physiological approaches to stress perfusion imaging, including the use of new pharmacologic stress agents; and
- An overview in recent changes in coding and reimbursement for nuclear cardiology studies.
Each presentation includes a panel discussion with top experts in the nuclear cardiology field.
