ASNC2016 is the meeting that matters most if your company is trying to connect with nuclear cardiology leaders and innovators!
In order to maintain competence and improve performance, imaging professionals must assimilate and integrate knowledge spanning multiple areas, including clinical data, technical aspects of imaging, and appropriate application of imaging (e.g., clinical guidelines and appropriate use criteria). Each of these areas is constantly evolving, particularly as innovative technologies and novel pharmacologic agents are introduced. ASNC2016 is an educational activity designed to help you and other imaging professionals obtain the latest information in clinical practice and review cutting-edge scientific advances in nuclear cardiology and cardiac imaging.
This course is intended for cardiologists, radiologists, nuclear medicine specialists, practice administrators, nuclear technologists, nurses and other health care professionals with an interest in the field of nuclear cardiology and cardiac CT imaging.
The overall goal of the meeting is to enhance knowledge by providing up-to-date developments in nuclear cardiology and cardiac CT.
After participating in this activity, learners will be able to:
Demonstrate improved skills in image interpretation and reporting
Learn how to recognize and minimize technical problems and artifacts that may be associated with cardiac imaging
Learn the appropriate use of cardiac imaging techniques based on current guidelines
Evaluate new imaging technologies, software, and stress techniques
Understand the role of nuclear and cardiac CT imaging in overall patient care
Learn the importance of balancing radiation exposure with image quality
Describe future directions in cardiac PET, CT, and SPECT/CT in order to anticipate training and equipment needs
Understand the clinical implication of CT coronary angiography cases and recognize its value and limitations in clinical cardiology
The program design includes:
A scientific forum featuring panel discussions on focused areas of cutting-edge research
State-of-the-art reviews of the key aspects of nuclear cardiology by the world’s experts
A basic core curriculum addressing practical issues in the performance of nuclear cardiology procedures to include opportunities for maintenance of certification credit
