Clinical Quantification of Myocardial Blood Flow Using PET (Provided by the American Society of Nuclear Cardiology in Collaboration with the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging)   
: March 21, 2018 12pm - 1pm
Facility: Marcelo F. Di Carli, MD, Venkatesh L. Murthy, MD, PhD, FACC, FASNCand Rob Beanlands, MD, FRCPC, FASNC
Details: This informative 60-minute webinar will help you: 1. Review differences between radiopharmaceuticals available for clinical myocardial perfusion PET imaging. 2. Understand key technical aspects about imaging protocols and post-processing of multi-frame PET data for myocardial blood flow quantification, and how to troubleshoot artifacts. 3. Review the pathophysiologic implications of quantitative myocardial blood flow and flow reserve data. 4. Provide a case-based discussion of clinical scenarios for an effective inclusion of quantitative flow data into clinical reports. 5. Discuss what quantitative data should be included and understand potential management implications of such data.
Credits: This webinar will offer 1 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM to physicians and 1 ARRT Category A credit to technologists. ASNC members may claim continuing education credits at no charge. Non-members will be charged $75.00 per activity.
