MPI 5: Coronary Anatomy and the Physiologic Basis of Hyperemia and Coronary Flow

Recorded On: 10/30/2013

An overview of coronary artery anatomy will be reviewed in a live, interactive format that simulates clinical practice.

Learning objectives include:

•Better understand coronary artery anatomy and its variations
•Correlate perfusion defects with specific coronary artery distributions
•Better understand exercise and pharmacologic measures that result in hyperemia to cause perfusion defects
•Better understand use of the hybrid pharmacologic and exercise stress testing to induce optimal hyperemia in those unable to achieve adequate exercise stress
