MPI 4: Tracers and Stress Modalities for MPI
Recorded On: 07/31/2013
IAEA and ASNC bring you the fourth in a series of free MPI webinars. This webinar is designed to increase cardiologists, radiologists, and nuclear medicine physicians' knowledge of myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI). This session will cover stress modalities, including: 1)exercise, 2)pharm stress, 3) hybrid protocols, and 4) investigational agents and protocols. It will also describe how to perform the studies properly and discuss how to combine stress findings with perfusion findings and gated SPECT to optimize diagnostic and prognostic utility. Stress tracers, both SPECT and PET, will also be covered and include a discussion of investigational F-18 agents.
This live webinar offers an interactive format that simulates clinical practice. Participants will be able to evaluate and assess their skills and improve their knowledge of MPI and its applications and value in cardiac diagnosis and prognosis. No CME or CE credit is provided.
