Nuclear Cardiology Around the World: A PatientFirst Approach—Europe

Watch Now OnDemand!

“Nuclear Cardiology Around the World: A PatientFirst Approach,” focuses on what can be learned from the European approach to common clinical problems seen in nuclear cardiology laboratories around the world.

Session Overview:

The webinar features four case presentations including infection, inflammation, amyloidosis and microvascular disease, and address the role of hybrid imaging to enhance diagnosis.

Through an interactive, case-based discussion, dive into daily practice through real-world examples of how nuclear cardiology contributes to clinical decision-making in Europe. Nuclear cardiologists, either from cardiology or nuclear medicine, and the “users” of nuclear cardiology techniques, including cardiologists, internists, and general practitioners, should tune in.
