Summary

The course will be suitable for all professionals involved in using or delivering
a nuclear cardiology service, whether medical, nursing or technical. It is particularly suitable for
specialty trainees wishing to gain basic experience in nuclear cardiology and for those wishing to
progress to independent reporting.

Focus on

  • radiopharmaceuticals and imaging protocols
  • stress techniques
  • physics, instrumentation and radiation protection
  • how to report 
  • myocardial perfusion scintigraphy in the diagnosis and prognosis of coronary artery disease
  • imaging in heart failure

The 21st annual Royal Brompton & Harefield course in practical nuclear cardiology may be valuable for cardiology or nuclear medicine specialty trainees, as well as established consultants, nurse stressors, radiographers, technicians or anyone else interested in cardiac imaging.
It provides a mix of didactic teaching and practical sessions with hands-on teaching from an internationally renowned faculty.
There is an emphasis on reporting skills and on cases presented in clinically relevant settings alongside complementary imaging techniques such as echocardiography, CMR and X-ray CT.
Even those who doubt, on occasion, the relevance of functional imaging for their practice may emerge from the course with a new perspective.
The course qualifies as the basic experience that is required of all cardiology and other trainees, even if not intending to subspecialise in cardiac imaging.
Those with existing experience may also benefit from refresher training and from a comprehensive review of basic principles.
