The Best Practices for Today, Innovations for Tomorrow program will draw cardiologists, nuclear medicine physicians, nuclear technologists, radiologists, and other nuclear cardiology professionals from all over the world who are interested in in-depth, case-based training that will and help them lead their teams in today’s rapidly evolving healthcare environment.
Why Should I Attend?
With healthcare’s growing emphasis on value, whether it’s on how quality care will be assessed or how reimbursements will be calculated, you’ll dive into a comprehensive curriculum that combines practical learning with forward-looking discussions about increasing the value of imaging in practice.
You’ll not only gain knowledge, but also competence and improved performance in areas like reducing radiation doses and applying appropriate use criteria and guidelines. You’ll delve into the evolving role of multi-modality imaging and the technical aspects of PET imaging, and discuss the importance of data reporting and performance measures. In the end you’ll see how these topics and more are contributing to the changing healthcare environment and impacting nuclear cardiology. For more detailed descriptions of the sessions, here’s the program agenda.
The program content qualifies for continuing education (CE) credit. With scheduling challenges, additional cost, and sometimes limited availability of qualifying instruction, satisfying the requirements of the regulatory world is particularly important for both technologists and physicians, especially in light of the new regulatory mandates.
ASNC is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education (CME) for physicians and designates the program for a maximum of 19 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits. They are also a recognized provider of continuing education credit for technologists. Their CE credit is accepted by the NMTCB and ARRT. The program has been approved for a maximum of 19.0 ARRT Category A credits for technologists.
