Education for Technologists

This section is an online resource for nuclear technologists and other healthcare and laboratory professionals who work in or support the field of nuclear cardiology.
 
Online Education

ASNC 2017: Multimodailty Imaging and ASNC 2017: Not Just Pushing Buttons
These activities are based on sessions offered at the live ASNC2017 22nd Annual Scientific Meeting September 14-17, 2017 in Kansas City, MO. The focus of the sessions was to showcase current best practices when performing nuclear cardiology imaging studies and to enhance technologist knowledge, competence and skills in applications about appropriate use critera, radiation safety, reporting and lab performance in using appropriate guidelines-based treatment.
  • Demonstrate improved skills in image interpretation and reporting
  • Learn how to recognize and minimize technical problems and artifacts that may be associated with cardiac imaging
  • Learn the appropriate use of cardiac imaging techniques based on current guidelines
  • Learn the importance of balancing radiation exposure with image quality
These activities will offer 1.5 ARRT Category A credits to technologists only. ASNC members may claim continuing education credits for $25.00 per activity and non-members will be charged $75.00 per activity. 

Quality & Nuclear Cardiology: Importance to Technologists

Faculty: April Mann, MBA, CNMT, NCT, RT(N), MASNC, FSNMMI-TS
This informative 60-minute webinar will help you:  
  • Discuss the basic principles and theory of quality in healthcare
  • Discuss how quality is applied to imaging procedures
  • Discuss the humanistic factors affecting quality
  • Discuss the role of the nuclear medicine technologist in achieving a high quality interpretable image to drive patient care, outcomes and treatment
This webinar will offer 1 ARRT Category A credit to technologists only. ASNC members may claim continuing education credits at no charge.  Non-members will be charged $25.00 per activity. 

Clinical Quantification of Myocardial Blood Flow Using PET
Provided by the American Society of Nuclear Cardiology in Collaboration with the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging   
Wednesday, March 21, 2018, 12:00 (noon) pm to 1:00 pm ET
Faculty: Marcelo F. Di Carli, MD, Venkatesh L. Murthy, MD, PhD, FACC, FASNC, and Rob Beanlands, MD, FRCPC, FASNC
This informative 60-minute webinar will help you:  
  • Review differences between radiopharmaceuticals available for clinical myocardial perfusion PET imaging
  • Understand key technical aspects about imaging protocols and post-processing of multi-frame PET data for myocardial blood flow quantification, and how to troubleshoot artifacts
  • Review the pathophysiologic implications of quantitative myocardial blood flow and flow reserve data 
  • Provide a case-based discussion of clinical scenarios for an effective inclusion of quantitative flow data into clinical reports 
  • Discuss what quantitative data should be included and understand potential management implications of such data
This webinar will offer 1 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM to physicians and 1 ARRT Category A credit to technologists. ASNC members may claim continuing education credits at no charge.  Non-members will be charged $75.00 per activity. 
This activity is supported by an educational grant from Ionetix Corporation.
