ASNC2020: 25th Annual Scientific Session and Exhibition

Sep 25, 2020 ‐ Sep 26, 2020


ASNC2020: 25th Annual Scientific Session Meeting On Demand
American Society of Nuclear Cardiology

Overview

This On Demand activity is comprised of sessions and presentations from the live virtual ASNC2020 25th Annual Scientific Meeting hosted September 9-October 7, 2020. The focus of ASNC2020 meeting is to showcase current best practices, new ideas and emerging technology, radiation safety and appropriate use criteria in the nuclear cardiology clinical practice.

Important Dates
Date of Release: October 26, 2020
Date of Termination: October 26, 2021

Statement of Need

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. ASNC2020 On Demand is an educational activity designed to help imaging professionals on how to best improve outcomes for their patients with CVD.

Overall Purpose: This activity will increase learners’ competence in solving technical and clinical issues when treating patients with CVD. Sessions present different approaches to cardiac disease management to how to best improve patient outcomes. These sessions address topics in appropriate use criteria, SPECT best practices, PET best practices, new and emergent cardiac imaging procedures, lab performance and procedures, radiation safety, reporting, and lab performance and the application of appropriate guidelines-based treatments.

Learning Objectives:

  • 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
