The Role of Clinical Effectiveness of Multimodality Imaging in the Management of Cardiac Complications of Cancer and Cancer Therapy - 2016

Heart Failure
IAEA-ASNC webinar on Heart Failure
The first part of the webinar will provide an overview of established and exciting, new applications of radionuclide imaging in heart failure. In the second part the speaker will describe how ECG-gated Myocardial Perfusion SPECT imaging is used to measure the regional onset of mechanical contraction as an indicator of LV intraventricular dyssynchrony (LVD).

The session will also address how biventricular pacemakers are being used to treat systolic heart failure in patients with advanced left bundle branch block using Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT) and the role that LVD plays in predicting CRT response and assessing treatment. The potential of this use of LVD will be discussed under the results of the IAEA funded VISION-CRT study.
