PET Workshop Overview
Have you recently implemented or are considering a cardiac PET service line? Then join us for the Cardiac PET Intensive Workshop, a 1.5-day case-based program that provides a practical approach to cardiac PET and focuses on image acquisition, interpretation, and reporting PET myocardial perfusion studies with and without myocardial blood flow. 

The workshop also includes a discussion of emerging applications of cardiac PET. The program format will include lectures and small breakout sessions for in-depth learning. Participants will read and review 60 cardiac PET studies with expert faculty in small group sessions to enhance interaction and learning. If you are just starting a PET lab or planning to, this course is for you!

This case-based workshop will provide:​
  • Small group case-based discussions
  • Approaches to performing, interpreting and reporting cardiac PET myocardial perfusion and metabolic studies
  • Understanding the importance of myocardial blood flow measurements
  • Considerations for starting a PET laboratory


13.25* CME credits available
