ASNC Breakfast Satellite Symposium

"Adding Clinical Value to Nuclear Cardiology Procedures"

Co-Sponsored by GE Healthcare LifeSciences and Syntermed, Inc.


New clinical needs require new tools

  • Major international clinical trials (Vision-CRT, Guide-CRT) demonstrate the value of using MPI for cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT).

  • CT measured Calcium Scores provide added clinical value as part of MPI analysis.  

  • Cardiac Amyloidosis Clinics have increasing need for nuclear cardiology imaging.

  • Cloud access and structured reporting integrated to MPI software tools are improving quality and efficiency in clinical practice.

The software tools used to generate this value will be discussed in this session.
