Is PET the future of nuclear cardiology- why?

Wednesday, February 1, 2023 - 14:12

<p>Cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of death in the United States and worldwide. In the light of the changing landscape of cardiac diseases epidemiology, conventional imaging techniques are no longer effective for diagnosis, risk assessment, and patient management . In contrast, quantitative PET provides absolute measurements that can help tackle these challenges and significantly improve patient care.&nbsp;<br /> &nbsp;<br /> In this webinar, Dr Di Carli from Brigham and Women's Hospital and Dr. Buechel from University Hospital Zurich will explain why they believe PET imaging is the future in management of CVD.</p>
Dr. Marcelo Fernando Di Carli Director of CV Imaging and Chief Division of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging at Brigham and Women's Hospital.
Prof. Ronny R. Buechel Deputy Chair of the Department of Nuclear Medicine at University Hospital Zurich and an expert in multimodality non-invasive cardiac imaging (Nuclear/CT/MRI).

The clinical value PET myocardial blood flow quantification and practical aspects of implementing a Cardiac PET Program

The clinical value of myocardial flow quantification is supported by numerous observational and clinical studies in various populations. Its use is no longer restricted to a few academic centers as the technology advances and guidelines evolves. In this webinar two leading figures in the field discussed the clinical value and practical aspects of PET quantification in cardiovascular imaging and why and how to implement this modality in your institution. What will you learn from the webinar? The practical aspects and clinical value of myocardial blood flow quantification in PET in patients with cardiovascular disease - By Piotr Slomka One of the most important advances in nuclear cardiology is the opportunity to quantify myocardial blood flow (MBF) and myocardial flow reserve (MFR) routinely as part of myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) with PET. Dr.&nbsp;Slomka will review practical aspects of the MBF measurements with PET and discuss its clinical value in the management of cardiac patients. How to implement a cardiac PET myocardial perfusion imaging program ? (Due to the institution policy, the recording could not be shared) - By Sharmila Dorbala Dr. Dorbala will give an overview of the advantages of PET at identifying coronary artery disease (CAD), related workflow and current guidelines.&nbsp;She will also share her experience on how to implement a PET cardiac program.
