The overall goal of this educational initiative is to increase knowledge and awareness of the appropriate interpretation and reporting of Tc-99m PYP imaging and provide an update on the recent addendum to the expert consensus recommendations for Tc-99m PYP imaging. Imaging physicians need to understand how to perform, process, interpret, and report Tc-99m PYP imaging in appropriate patients and understand what can lead to false positive and false negative studies so that the right patients can be referred in a timely manner to amyloid experts for treatment and management. The initiative will
