Webinar - Cardiac PET Imaging: whats new and how to start

Wednesday, November 17, 2021 - 13:22

<p>As our healthcare system&nbsp;is constantly looking for more value medicine, the use of cardiac PET is rapidly expanding and becoming one of the pillar for cardiac imaging. Cardiac PET has been widely adopted because it provides: high diagnostic accuracy and it is safe, efficient and patient-centered.</p> <p>IBA invites you to attend a free webinar presented by 2 leading figures of Nuclear Medicine: Dr. Terrence Ruddy and Dr.&nbsp;Parthiban Arumugam.</p> <p>What will you learn from the webinar ?</p> <ul> <li>Cardiac PET Myocardial Perfusion Imaging in 2020 - By&nbsp;Dr. Terrence Ruddy</li> </ul> <p>Dr. Ruddy will start with the basic of PET Cardiac imaging versus other modalities and share the recent advances in the field including the last results of the ISCHEMIA trial and coming CMS AUC (Appropriate Use&nbsp;Criteria) and its potential impact in the field.</p> <ul> <li>How to implement a Cardiac PET Program in your site&nbsp;- By&nbsp;Dr.&nbsp;<span>Parthiban</span> <span>Arumugam</span></li> </ul> <p>Dr.&nbsp;Arumugam will share his expertise on how to plan and implement a PET Cardiac Imaging Program covering resources (cost of equipment, tracers and staffing requirements) and supporting guidelines from national and international societies and also additional information that perfusion PET can offer over and above SPECT for a more precise diagnosis.</p>

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.
