Have you recently implemented or are considering a cardiac PET service line? Then join ASNC for one of two unique and informative workshops scheduled for May 4-5, 2019 and November 9-10, 2019, in Tysons Corner, Va. The workshops will provide a practical approach to cardiac PET. Each 1.5-day case-based workshop will focus on image acquisition, interpretation and reporting PET myocardial perfusion studies with and without myocardial blood flow. 

The workshops will also include a discussion of emerging applications of cardiac PET. The program format will include lectures and small breakout sessions for in-depth learning. Participants will read and review 60 cardiac PET studies with expert faculty, in small group sessions to enhance interaction and learning. If you are just starting or plan to start at PET lab, this course is for you!
