Join us for CVI’s PET-CT Imaging program: “Making the Case for PET-CT Myocardial Perfusion Imaging: The Gold Standard for Pharmacologic Stress Testing.” Live webinar will be held:
Thursday February 16, 2023 (1.5 CME/CEU/VOICE Credits)
The CVI’s PET-CT Imaging program includes a discussion PET-CT MPI versus SPECT MPI and Philadelphia cardiologist, Herman Movsowitz, MD and features national thought leader, Robert Bober, MD who will be discussing absolute versus relative perfusion and the mechanisms of angina.
In current clinical practice, SPECT myocardial perfusion imaging [MPI] is the predominant imaging modality used to assess for flow limiting epicardial CAD. However, SPECT MPI has multiple limitations some of which can be improved upon by a newer imaging modality, PET MPI. Many US cardiologists are unaware of the differences between SPECT MPI and PET MPI and when one modality may be preferred over the other.
This educational program addresses the differences between SPECT MPI and PET MPI based on tracer characteristics and camera technology, discusses societal recommendations for their clinical use, and explains the added clinical value of assessing absolute myocardial perfusion in addition to relative perfusion.
Cardiologists, radiologists, nuclear medicine physicians, nuclear technologists, fellows, residents, advanced practice providers involved in nuclear medicine. The program is also appropriate for all physicians and healthcare professionals who treat patients with coronary artery disease.
Faculty and all others who have the ability to control the content of continuing medical education activities sponsored by the Pennsylvania Medical Society are expected to disclose to the audience whether they do or do not have any real or apparent conflict(s) of interest or other relationship(s) related to the content of their presentation(s).
