Learner Objectives
After participating in the NC Core Curriculum, learners should be able to:

  • Define basic principles of SPECT and MUGA acquisition/display including tomographic views and planes
  • Define and understand properties and use of standard perfusion tracers
  • Gain knowledge of principles of stress testing, contraindications and when to choose exercise versus pharmacologic
  • Understand basics of pre-test risk and how to incorporate results to get post-test risk
  • Understand basics of pharmacologic stress agents (mechanism of action, administration, safety)
  • Understand the protocols used with perfusion tracers, how it is tailored to imaging need (patient centered imaging)
  • Gain knowledge regarding protocols of assessing myocardial viability
  • Recognize the role of SPECT on ventricular function assessment
  • Identify appropriate imaging study for indication
  • Integrate perfusion findings to clinical and EKG data
  • Identify a high risk study
  • Gain knowledge of AUC and its application
NC Core Curriculum is included with all ASNC Univeristy packages. Select your training program size to access special pricing.

The Cardiac PET Curriculum is designed to improve your knowledge and understanding of cardiovascular PET imaging. The Cardiac PET Curriculum contains a series of 26 modules addressing the fundamentals of PET imaging, hardware and software associated with PET scanners, clinical applications with case-based scenarios, and detailed protocols for use. 

Learner Objectives
After participating in this activity, learners should be able to achieve the following:
  • Differentiate the clinical value of PET versus SPECT imaging
  • Describe the various hardware and software options for PET imaging and their strengths and limitations
  • Employ procedures to ensure PET studies are acquired appropriately for clinical PET studies.
  • Explain the various PET imaging protocols and patient preparation critical to performing appropriate PET studies
  • Describe how to acquire and report myocardial blood flow results from a PET perfusion study
  • Detail shielding, patient preparation and other regulatory requirements to establish a PET facility
Add-on the Cardiac PET Curriculum to your purchase. 

The goal of the ASNC/SNMMI 80 Hour Radionuclide Authorized User Training Course is to train physicians who wish to become Authorized Users on the broad knowledge base necessary to establish a quality-focused safety culture that benefits patients and to be able to effectively and safely diagnose and risk-stratify patients in imaging and localization studies.

The course has been designed to meet the requirements of the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) and Agreement States on the didactic portion of the Training and Experience Requirements (US NRC 10 CFR 35.290). 

Add-on the 80 Hour Course to your purchase. The course will launch Spring 2022.
