Cardiac PET: Step by Step interpretation of myocardial perfusion study; Cardiac PET different techniques and interpretation
Date: Postponed and will be rescheduled

Join Drs. Chareonthaitawee and Jouni for a case-based discussion of the latest information on how to perform, interpret and report cardiac PET myocardial perfusion and its value in clinical practice. There will be an opportunity to ask questions during the last 10-minutes of this webinar.
 
Learning objectives:
  • Describe rubidium-82 and N-13 ammonia protocols for PET myocardial perfusion imaging and measurement of myocardial blood flow
  • Interpret normal and abnormal rubidium-82 and N-13 ammonia PET myocardial perfusion images
  • Discuss the approach to incorporating myocardial blood flow measurements and gated and CT data
  • Consider pitfalls in the performance and interpretation of PET myocardial perfusion imaging
