Nuclear Cardiology Today

"Strategies to Thrive in a Changing Healthcare Environment"



Get access to the live program as well as unlimited access to the session recordings through August 2, 2021.

Take your lab to the next level with live and pre-recorded sessions reviewing the latest advances in SPECT and PET imaging and providing practical insights into running an efficient, productive nuclear cardiology laboratory. 

This program provides attendees with practical knowledge and expert perspectives on the delivery of high-value nuclear cardiology services in the evolving healthcare environment. A key feature of the program is addressing everyday practice dilemmas that arise in the nuclear lab. The case-based approach to disease management equips participants to demonstrate the value of nuclear cardiology to their administrators and referring physicians.

Overall Goal

This program will increase learners’ competence in solving technical and clinical issues facing imaging professionals running nuclear cardiology laboratories. The case-based approach to disease management equips participants to demonstrate the value of nuclear cardiology to their administrators and referring physicians. The Health Policy sessions provide an update regarding the latest changes in policy and reimbursement that impact the contemporary nuclear cardiology laboratory. The Practical Dilemma sessions provides attendees with the opportunity to understand how the expert faculty deal with many of the common problems encountered in everyday practice where no evidence-based clinical guidelines exist.

Learning Objectives

  • Describe recent advances in cardiac single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) acquisition, processing and interpretation, and how they impact clinical practice

  • ​​Define ways to avoid image artifacts with SPECT imaging​​

  • Characterize non-imaging abnormalities associated with pharmacologic stress testing

  • Summarize recent advances in positron emission tomography (PET) technology

  • Differentiate CTFFR from PET with myocardial blood flow

  • Employ optimal methodology to interpret and report nuclear cardiology studies

  • Determine the impact of MACRA/MIPS on value-based care

  • Evaluate the role of coronary calcium scoring in managing patients with CAD

  • Compare and contrast the roles of anatomic and physiologic imaging in patients with CAD

  • Integrate appropriate use criteria into test decision process
