Chest Pain Webinar Series

You are invited to join us for, “The Role of MPI in Chest Pain: A #PatientFirst Approach,” a new complimentary, OnDemand webinar series.
Each webinar will tackle key topics in the evaluation and diagnosis of chest pain through addressing various clinical presentations and settings.


The series will launch December 3 with "Chest Pain in the ED" followed by "PET Myocardial Blood Flow in Patients with Chest Pain" on December 13. New webinars will continue through to February of 2022. 
These webinars are offered free of charge as part of ASNC’s #PatientFirst Initiative.

Goals and Objectives

  • To discuss the role of myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) in patients with chest pain in the current multimodality imaging environment
  • To provide case-based learning on the appropriate use of MPI across the spectrum of chest pain patients 
  • To work with you on finding an optimal pathway to risk-stratify, diagnose and treat chest pain patients

The Role of MPI in Chest Pain: A Patient-First Approach

1. Chest Pain in ED Patients: Which Test to Choose and Why
Release Date: December 3
Faculty: Wael Jaber, MD, FASNC, and Paul Cremer, MD – Cleveland Clinic
Moderators: Dennis Calnon, MD, MASNC, and Randall C. Thompson, MD, MASNC
Description: This webinar will discuss the important role of functional imaging in patients with intermediate-to-high likelihood of CAD and no acute coronary syndrome presenting to the emergency department with chest pain. The case-based webinar will explore how to choose the appropriate testing strategy in older adults with high coronary calcium, patients with prior revascularization, patients with kidney disease, young diabetic patients and other clinical scenarios encountered in the emergency department. 
2. Incremental Value of PET MBF in Chest Pain Patients
Release Date: December 13
Faculty: Marcelo Di Carli, MD, MASNC, and Mouaz Al-Mallah, MD, MSc, FASNC
Moderators: Timothy Bateman, MD, MASNC, Rob Beanlands, MD, MASNC, and

Description: This webinar will demonstrate how two institutions, Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Houston Methodist Hospital, use PET myocardial perfusion imaging with myocardial blood flow in the evaluation of patients with chest pain.  
3. Evaluating Clinic Patients with Chest Pain and No History of CAD
4. Chest Pain in Patients with Prior Revascularization: Appropriate Next Steps
5. Chest Pain in Women: Is it Heart Disease?
6. Chest Pain in Patients with Normal Coronaries: Next Best Steps
7. Myocardial Perfusion Imaging after CCTA: What Are We Looking For?
8. Chest Pain Series Live Town Hall 
Featured Faculty: Wael Jaber, MD, FASNC, Dennis Calnon, MD, MASNC, and
Randall C. Thompson, MD, MASNC 
Description: The Town Hall will serve as an open forum for presenting key points from each of the webinars in the series with live Q&A with the faculty experts.
