  • Recognize the proper application of the ACC/ASNC AUC across a variety of patients
  • Employ optimal methodology to acquire, process, interpret, and report nuclear cardiology studies
  • Evaluate the benefits and risks of new protocols and imaging technologies and how to incorporate these into clinical practice
  • Review and improve interpretation skills in standard and emerging technologies in nuclear cardiology
  • Recognize how to utilize clinical practice guidelines to enhance performance, document compliance, and improve clinical management
  • Analyze and update the basic physiological approach to stress testing and perfusion imaging
  • Review the role of radionuclide myocardial perfusion imaging in the diagnosis and prognosis of coronary artery disease
  • Evaluate the role of complementary myocardial imaging techniques including cardiovascular computed tomography
