Clinical Nuclear Cardiology from the Nuts and Bolts to the Recent Advances
Clinical Nuclear Cardiology: From the Nuts and Bolts to the Recent Advances Can you envision your nuclear cardiology laboratory in 2050?
All that glitters is not TTR amyloid. Can you list 3 instances in which the PYP scan may be positive in the absence of TTR amyloid?
Do you know how to diagnose microvascular disease in women?
Do you know how to set up a cardiac sarcoid imaging program? Or perhaps a PET program?
Find answers to these questions, and many more! Designed to meet the needs of professionals who perform or request nuclear cardiology studies, this program awards more than 15 hours of nuclear cardiology CME—all the credit you need to meet your laboratory's ICANL accreditation requirements.
Outline the key features to optimize nuclear cardiology laboratory equipment and protocols in 2021 and beyond.
Illustrate the main components of building programs for sarcoid, amyloid, and PET imaging.
Recognize the unique features of cardiac imaging in women and special populations.
This activity is intended for cardiologists, radiologists, nuclear medicine specialists, physician assistants, cardiac imaging technologists, and other health care professionals seeking education to maintain their licenses.
Joint Accreditation Statement
In support of improving patient care, this activity has been planned and implemented by the American College of Cardiology Foundation (ACCF). ACCF is jointly accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) to provide continuing education for the health care team.
The ACCF designates this enduring material for a maximum of 18 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
ABIM Maintenance of Certification
Successful completion of this CME activity, which includes participation in the evaluation component, enables the participant to earn up to 18 Medical Knowledge MOC points in the American Board of Internal Medicine's (ABIM) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program. It is the CME activity provider's responsibility to submit participant completion information to ACCME for the purpose of granting ABIM MOC credit.
Date of Release: March 1, 2022 Term of Approval/Date of CME/MOC Expiration: March 1, 2024
