ACHIEVING QUALITY IN CARDIAC PET, PART II: INTERPRETATION BEST PRACTICES
Wednesday, August 21, 2019, 1 pm ET

Presenter: Jamieson Bourque, MD, MHS

IAC Nuclear/PET will present a live webinar (followed by a Q&A session) entitled Achieving Quality in Cardiac PET, Part II: Interpretation Best Practices.  The second in a two-part series, this webinar is a joint presentation of IAC and the American Society of Nuclear Cardiology (ASNC).  In addition, registered participants are eligible to receive 1.0 ARRT Category A credit. (Participants must successfully complete the evaluation after the webinar before they can receive the credit.)

The American Society of Nuclear Cardiology is a recognized provider of continuing education credit for technologists. ASNC's Continuing Education credit is accepted by both NMTCB and ARRT. This live activity has been approved for a maximum of 1 ARRT Category A credits for technologists.

April Mann, MBA, CNMT, NCT, RT(N), FANC, MASNC, Hartford Hospital, Hartford, CT 
This activity is supported by an educational grant from Pfizer. No CME/CE provided.

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
Awards 1.5 ARRT Category A credits to technologists; ASNC members pay $25.00 per activity and non-members will be charged $75.00 per activity. 
Expires July 31, 2021.
