Cardiac PET Intensive Virtual Workshop Overview
The workshop will also include a discussion of emerging applications of cardiac PET. The program format will include lectures and small breakout sessions for in-depth learning. Participants will read and review 60 cardiac PET studies with expert faculty in small group sessions to enhance interaction and learning. If you are just starting a PET lab or planning to, this course is for you!

This case-based workshop will provide:

  • Pre-recorded lectures
  • Live case review
  • Small group case-based discussions
  • Approaches to performing, interpreting and reporting cardiac PET myocardial perfusion and metabolic studies
  • Understanding the importance of myocardial blood flow measurements
  • Considerations for starting a PET laboratory
New this year is the inclusion of a 2-day, 9-hour focused program for technologists. Technologists, physicists and physicians from well-established PET labs will share their hands-on-learning experiences to assist technologists starting a PET lab and provide guidance to those already running a PET lab on everyday issues and challenges.
  
The following technologist focused sessions, each 1.5 hours in length, are designed to provide the necessary information on a range of the key topics impacting the successful operation of a cardiovascular PET laboratory: 
 
  • Why Are We Doing Cardiac PET? 
  • Basics of Delivery Systems for Cardiac PET Perfusion
  • Technical Issues in Transitioning from SPECT to PET
  • Diving Into Perfusion Imaging Protocols
  • Myocardial Blood Flow: Getting It Right
  • Things You Need to Know That Were Not Previously Covered
