Summary

THIS COURSE IS CANCELLED.

The registered participants will be contacted soon.

Organised by EACVI: This short course covers the major items of the EACVI core syllabus for nuclear cardiology and provides a grounding in the theoretical and practical aspects of radionuclide imaging techniques in cardiology.

A series of talks will address the most important aspects of clinical nuclear cardiology, to include:

  • 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 talks will be complimented by discussion of clinical cases in small groups to simulate live reporting experience.

We are pleased to announce that registration for the EACVI course, Nuclear Cardiology in Practice 2016, now comes with complimentary access to the eLearning tool eScan Academy (www.eScanAcademy.com). With this tool you can practice reading and interpreting myocardial perfusion studies and we encourage all participants to study the three courses in this field prior to the EACVI 2016 teaching course. The complimentary access expires 14 days after the EACVI 2016 teaching course.

Target Audience

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