CHOLECYSTOKININ-CHOLESCINTIGRAPHY (CCK-CS) IN CHRONIC ABDOMINAL PAIN: Basics and Standard Application State-of-the-Art Review

To participate in this on-demand web program (valid thru June 1, 2020) click here

This program will provide guidance for clinicians who diagnose and treat biliary pain and functional gall bladder disorders and will use case studies to demonstrate how to appropriately apply CCK-CS to clinical decision making, including the decision to recommend cholecystectomy. For nuclear medicine physicians, pharmacists, and radiologic technologists.


CHOLECYSTOKININ-CHOLESCINTIGRAPHY (CCK-CS) IN CHRONIC ABDOMINAL PAIN: Case-Based Review of Practice Pearls

To participate in this on-demand web program (valid thru November 1, 2020) click here

This program will provide clinicians with the diagnostic precision of using (CCK-CS) in determining the pathology of chronic abdominal pain which requires a systematic approach and represents an unmet medical need. In this webinar, several case studies will be presented to demonstrate a systematic approach using a structured reporting checklist to ensure consistent detection of rare but consequential diagnoses. For nuclear medicine physicians, pharmacists, and radiologic technologists.


The Role of Positron Emission Tomography in the Physiologic Assessment

To participate in this on-demand web program (valid thru August 1, 2020) click here

This program will discuss the following:

  • Discuss the basics of positron emission tomography (PET) imaging and how PET differs from standard single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT)
  • Explain the differences in radiation exposure and convenience between PET and SPECT
  • Discuss evaluation of coronary flow reserve, myocardial perfusion, and absolute myocardial flow by PET imaging and their value in the assessment and management of coronary artery disease (CAD)
  • Introduce the concept of Coronary Flow Capacity and the potential impact on patient care
  • Use cardiac PET imaging to help identify patients for whom revascularization procedures may reduce coronary events
  • Discuss the benefits and drawbacks of commonly used cardiac PET radiotracers, including rubidium-82 and nitrogen-13 ammonia
  • Understand current challenges in nuclear

This program will discuss the following:

  • The basics of positron emission tomography (PET) imaging and how PET differs from standard single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT)
  • The benefits and disadvantages of commonly used cardiac PET radiotracers, including rubidium-82 and nitrogen-13 ammonia
  • The varieties of cardiac imaging studies that can be obtained with PET
  • The design and build associated with cardiac PET imaging
  • The camera varieties associated with cardiac PET imaging
  • The financing behind a cardiac PET program, including upfront capital, ongoing costs, and reimbursement

Clinical Cardiac PET- The Basics to Advance Clinical Applications

To participate in this on-demand web program (valid thru October 3, 2020) click here

This program will discuss the following:

  • Benefits of PET vs. SPECT
  • Quantification of absolute myocardial blood flow
  • Pitfalls in achieving accuracy and reproducibility in quantification of absolute myocardial blood flow
  • Coronary flow capacity as a standard for severity of CAD
  • Cardiac sarcoid imaging with PET

"Coronary Flow Capacity Assessment of Coronary Artery Physiology with Cardiac Positron Emission Tomography"

To participate in this on-demand web program (valid thru August 7, 2020) click here

The presentation will provide clarity concerning the tools to measure MBF and their interrelationship. The concept of coronary flow capacity (CFC) will be presented and its relevance and impact on clinical practice and patient care will be discussed. Clinicians who participate in this program will gain an appreciation for the use of positron emission tomography (PET) scanning with CFC to help identify patients who will benefit from revascularization. For nuclear medicine physicians, pharmacists, and radiologic technologists.

  • Identify how and why these 3 features are different in women vs men
  • The difference in men vs women in diagnosis and treatment of CAD
  • Cardiac PET with flow - what does it add for women?
  • Recognizing the difference in symptom presentation and why it is important
