Get Answers to These & Other Pressing Questions at ASNC's Technologists Workshop
The American Society of Nuclear Cardiology will offer “Nuclear Cardiology Today: Practical Approaches to Real-World Practice—Technologists Workshop,” on Saturday, April 18, 2020, in the Washington, D.C., area. This four-hour workshop will focus on providing practical, implementable answer to questions that cardiac imaging technologists face in everyday practice. For example:1 -- I understand that it is easy to make errors in amyloid image processing. How exactly should I calculate the heart-to-contralateral ratio for an amyloid scintigraphy study?
Robert Pagnanelli, BSRT(R)(N), CNMT, NCT, FASNC, will explain how to do these calculations in “Case Studies: Technical Aspects of Tc-99m PYP Imaging.”
2 – What do I, as a technologist, need to know about the amyloid disease process so I can adequately answer patients‘ questions?
The “Cardiac Amyloidosis – A Rare Disease?” Lecture by W. Lane Duval, MD, will detail what we need to understand about cardiac amyloidosis to give patients complete and helpful information when they ask questions.
3 -- What are the pros and cons of using solid-state cameras vs. conventional SPECT for myocardial perfusion imaging?
Jolene Fantony, CNMT, and Robert Pagnanelli, BSRT(R)(N), CNMT, NCT, FASNC, will explain the pros and cons of both options in a two-part talk on solid-state cameras.
The program directors also have carved out time for YOUR questions. ASNC invites you to take the mic, ask your questions and get answers from the faculty as well as other attendees. Take advantage of this opportunity to learn with—and from—the cardiac imaging technologist community.
