Cardiac PET Curriculum
ASNC's new Cardiac PET Curriculum is designed to improve your knowledge and understanding of cardiovascular PET imaging. The Cardiac PET Curriculum contains a series of 26 modules addressing the fundamentals of PET imaging, hardware, and software associated with PET scanners, clinical applications with case-based scenarios, and detailed protocols for use.
The Cardiac PET Curriculum is a must-have for anyone looking to start a PET lab or those who have an active PET lab and need to expand their cardiac PET training.
