Cardiac PET Workshops


Join us for Cardiac PET Virtual Workshops - case-based programs uniquely formatted to your knowledge level to enhance interaction and learning. Whether you are just starting a PET lab or have had an active cardiac PET lab for more than a year, you can find the course that is right for you! Don't miss this opportunity to access workshops virtually from the convenience of your home or office.


Cardiac PET Intensive Workshop

October 21-23, 2022



The Cardiac PET Intensive Workshops discuss emerging applications of cardiac PET. The program format includes lectures and small breakout sessions for in-depth learning. Participants read and review 60 cardiac PET studies with expert faculty in small group sessions to enhance interaction and learning.

These case-based workshops provide:

  • Pre-recorded lectures
  • Live case review
  • Small group case-based discussions
  • Approaches to performing, interpreting and reporting cardiac PET myocardial perfusion and metabolic studies
  • Understanding the importance of myocardial blood flow measurements
  • Considerations for starting a PET laboratory
     
New this year is the inclusion of a 2-day, 9-hour focused program for technologists. Technologists, physicists and physicians from well-established PET labs will share their hands-on-learning experiences to assist technologists starting a PET lab and provide guidance to those already running a PET lab on everyday issues and challenges.  
 
The following technologist focused sessions, each 1.5 hours in length, are designed to provide the necessary information on a range of the key topics impacting the successful operation of a cardiovascular PET laboratory: 
 
  • Why Are We Doing Cardiac PET? 
  • Basics of Delivery Systems for Cardiac PET Perfusion
  • Technical Issues in Transitioning from SPECT to PET
  • Diving Into Perfusion Imaging Protocols
  • Myocardial Blood Flow: Getting It Right
  • Things You Need to Know That Were Not Previously Covered
