Adding Clinical Value to Nuclear Cardiology Procedures 

New clinical needs require new tools. Major international clinical trials (Guide-CRT, Vision-CRT) are providing evidence of the value of using MPI  to guide cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT). Absolute myocardial blood flow and flow reserve with PET is providing evidence of additional value in detecting multivessel and microvascular disease. Clinical decision support systems have been implemented for assisting with MPI image interpretation and more importantly translating these findings into natural language structured reports and registry and certification transactions. The software tools used to generate this value will be discussed in this session.
