The goal is to strengthen interpretation skills and improve quality as it relates to SPECT cardiac Imaging studies performed in the nuclear cardiology lab.  World renown faculty will demonstrate how they interpret and report nuclear cardiology studies in their routine practices The activity will enhance patient first Imaging.
Content will be presented in a series of seven one-hour webinars, repeated every Thursday at 5:00 PM ET from June 24 to August 5. Each session will showcase SPECT reading studies from the workstation of a NC Lab with a presenter demonstrating interpretation skills that improve cardiac imaging studies and a moderator will address questions from the audience. Each session will offer 1 CME credit for a total of 7 CME credits.  The seven sessions will be presented in a live streaming virtual format.

Learning Objectives
After participating in this activity learners will be able to:
  • Describe best practices in cardiac single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) acquisition, processing and interpretation, and how they impact clinical practice
  • Employ optimal methodology to interpret and report nuclear cardiology studies
  • Identify the strengths and limitations of SPECT instrumentation and software
  • Define ways to avoid image artifacts in SPECT imaging
The American Society of Nuclear Cardiology is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
The American Society of Nuclear Cardiology designates this internet live educational activity for a maximum of 7 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)TM. Physicians should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
