A major national health care imperative for noninvasive imaging is to use the tests in a manner that provides value. This directive couples two major goals, which entail use of imaging resources judiciously while ensuring the proper application of imaging to identify and guide therapy of at-risk patients to improve clinical outcomes. To this end, nuclear cardiology, cardiac CT, and Cardiac MRI studies provide powerful tools that must be optimally performed, interpreted, reported, and acted upon by physicians and ordered on the right patients. Additionally, effective methods to reduce radiation exposure need to be implemented to maximize patient safety.
The objectives of the program are designed to meet the current needs of professionals who perform or request nuclear cardiology, cardiac CT or Cardiac MRI studies. Using these studies optimally requires knowledge of best practices for the modalities, regarding performing to reporting the studies, the evidence base regarding their use, the relevant appropriateness of their use in specific clinical settings, and the treatment options that should be recommended based on the results. We are pleased to be able to meet these educational needs through a live three-day symposium entitled, “Advances in Nuclear Cardiology and Cardiac CT: 31st Annual Case Review with the Experts with a 101 Evidence-based Cases”. The course emphasizes the use of these modalities across the spectrum of patients routinely seen by physicians day-to-day in a typical practice, both for the evaluation of individuals with suspected or known coronary disease as well as other non-coronary cardiac disease states.
With a stellar faculty, “Advances in Nuclear Cardiology and Cardiac CT: 31st Annual Case Review with the Experts with 101 Evidence-based Cases” will provide the latest information in nuclear cardiology, cardiac CT, and Cardiac MRI using images and clinical correlations on 101 cases as the principal teaching method. The course is designed to increase quality in performing, interpreting, reporting and applying nuclear cardiology and cardiac CT studies.
