Heart Failure in Cardiac Amyloidosis

Alternate text

Join us virtually for Heart Failure in Cardiac Amyloidosis: Suspecting and Diagnosing Transthyretin Amyloid Cardiomyopathy in Underdiagnosed Populations at Risk for Heart Failure on July 16, 2024 from 5:00 PM - 7:30 PM CDT / 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM EDT, to learn the signs and symptoms of heart failure in patients at risk for Cardiac Amyloidosis as well as the latest updates in diagnosis and treatment options.

Led by Program Chair, J. Clay Hays, Jr., MD, this program will focus on how to:

  • Recognize barriers to identification and diagnosis of ATTR-CM in patients at risk for Heart Failure.
  • Identify “Red Flags” and other markers of disease that raise suspicion and need for further testing.
  • Summarize the diagnostic evaluation for ATTR-CM including the differential diagnosis.
  • Demonstrate the importance of multimodality imaging in diagnosing ATTR-CM.
  • Discuss the importance of genetic testing and counseling.
  • Provide details of bone scintigraphy protocols and the importance of SPECT and SPECT/CT imaging, interpretation, and components of an appropriate report.
  • Evaluate existing and new treatments for patients with ATTR-CM.
