Complex Cardiovascular Imaging: Education for Technologists, Technicians and Nurses

Date: 10-15-2022About the Event:

Imaging for individuals with cardiovascular disease has continued to advance and grow in complexity. The field of cardiovascular imaging with cardiac CT angiography, cardiac MR, nuclear cardiology/PET and echocardiography has evolved into giving health care providers less invasive testing options to diagnose patients with cardiovascular disease. Multi-modality educational opportunities are limited in this rapidly changing field due to the small numbers of trained cardiac imaging technologists and support staff. 

Educational content will focus on ordering the correct imaging for each patient especially in the areas of structural heart disease, heart failure, coronary flow and more. Participants will learn from industry-leading cardiovascular imaging physicians, clinicians and technologists who will present the most current principles, techniques, risks and limitations of different cardiovascular imaging modalities. 

Location: This is a virtual event facilitated through Zoom webinar
