Nuclear Cardiology – SPECT

You can learn: what viable myocardium is, what hibernating myocardium is, how they can be detected, evidence for the benefit of revascularisation

Identifying motion artifacts on RAW images, co-registration images, and perfusion images. Steps to correct the artifacts and remedy the problem.

Understand the limitations of traditional SPECT. Changing landscape in type of patients being imaged by SPECT. Poor Specificity of SPECT with rising BMI. Attenuation Correction to mitigate this poor specificity. Call to adopt newer technologies in our practice to better serve our patients and limit equivocal studies/results.

MPS CZT clinical cases: normal, ischemia and necrosis. How to read and how to interpret perfusion and function in different clinical conditions.

TID, does it always represent ischemia or pathology? Understanding how perfusion and gated images are acquired.

Appropriate use Criteria for pre-op testing. Artifacts on SPECT-CT that can mislead the reader and be misconstrued as perfusion defects. Importance of following all the steps when reading a scan and avoiding shortcuts.

A brief description of the evaluation of the innervation of the heart by nuclear cardiology.

A brief description of a positive MPS in the LCx territory in a patient with mitral regurgitation.

This tutorial will walk you step by step through an abnormal MPS CZT study.

A brief description of how to interpret a normal MPS scan: perfusion and function.

A brief description of the new CZT cameras: design, image acquisition, image reconstruction.
