Nuclear Cardiology Virtual Boot Camp for Fellows-in-Training


 

Join us Monday, Oct. 19, through Thursday, Oct. 22, from 6:00PM to 7:30PM (EDT) for "Nuclear Cardiology Virtual Boot Camp for Fellows-in-Training."


Agenda

The program will be offered in four 90-minute sessions, one session per day for four days. Think of it like an intense workout with Program Director Mouaz Al-Mallah, MD, FASNC, and faculty guiding you through two to three essential topics per session.

Topics will include:
  • Session 1 (Oct. 19):  Nuclear Physics and Instrumentation; Stress and Imaging Protocols; and Image Interpretation: Low-risk and High-risk Features. 
  • Session 2 (Oct. 20): Coronary Artery Calcium Score: When to Add to MPI; AUC: When to Use MPI; Cases and Discussion: 
  • Session 3 (Oct. 21): PET Myocardial Perfusion Imaging; PET Imaging of Viability, Inflammation, and Infection; and Cases and Discussion 
  • Session 4 (Oct. 22): SPECT Artifacts; Imaging Cardiac Amyloidosis; Cases and Discussion 


Registration

This program is offered to cardiology fellows for FREE. Register now.

Fellows-in-Training may become members of ASNC for free to support their career throughout the year. Learn more!
