Cardiac PET: Real-world Applications Webinar Series
ASNC’s “Cardiac PET: Real-world Applications Webinar Series” examines how F-18-labeled radiopharmaceuticals are poised to transform the diagnosis and management of three patient populations for whom imaging with current tracers and methodologies has been challenging.
Each 30-minute webinar features experts highlighting opportunities that nuclear cardiologists soon will have to improve patient care by using F-18 tracers.

Attendees can earn up to 1.5 CME credits (0.5 per webinar).
- Understanding the added value of PET MPI and MBF over SPECT in obese patients, patients with diabetes, and women at risk for cardiovascular disease
- Describing the significance of F-18 labeled tracers and what they offer over SPECT imaging and other PET MPI tracers in the target populations
- Analyzing recent clinical data with F-18 flurpiridaz and its potential impact on imaging women, obese patients, and women with suspected CAD.
- Reviewing clinical case studies demonstrating the enhanced image quality of F-18 flurpiridaz and diagnostic accuracy compared with SPECT imaging
