INTENSIVE 5:
Practical Dilemmas In Every Day Practice: Strategies For Difficult Situations
Moderators: Dennis Calnon, MD, MASNC and David Wolinsky, MD, MASNC
8:55 AM Welcome, Final Logistics Dennis Calnon, MD
9:00 AM Can ER patients with borderline stress test or CTA be
discharged to complete their work-up as outpatient? 
David Wolinsky, MD
9:15 AM Is CAC a value in patients with chest pain? Khurram Nasir, MD
9:45 AM How do I determine pre-test probability of CAD in a
symptomatic patient in 2022?
Prem Soman, MD, PhD
10:00 AM The patient has minimal-to-no increase in myocardial
blood flow during vasodilator stress PET MPI. 
Dennis Calnon, MD
10:15 AM Patient has a very high calcium score (2200) with no
symptoms but leads a sedentary live style. Should the patient
have a stress test or go straight to catheterization? 
Khurram Nasir, MD
10:30 AM Break
11:00 AM The patient reaches target heart rate at less than 5 METS of
exercise due to severe deconditioning and anxiety:
is this an adequate stress for MPI?
Randall Thompson, MD
11:15 AM What does it mean if the myocardial blood flow reserve is
abnormal because resting MBF is elevated?
Should we report corrected MBFR or peak stress MBF?
Mouaz Al-Mallah, MD
11:30 AM Should Tc-99m PYP be done routinely pre-TAVR?
If Tc-99m PYP is positive, should we proceed with TAVR?
