Quantification of Myocardial Perfusion 2019
June 13-14, 2019
CHU Caen University Hospital
An application has been made to the UEMS EACCME for CME accreditation of this event.
This course focuses on myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) with technetium agents and PET with H215O. A special attention is given to dynamics acquisitions to obtain myocardial blood flow and flow reserve by CZT camera and PET that is the nuclear medicine gold standard modality to determine myocardial absolute quantitive measurements.
HOW TO REGISTER
The course allows a maximum of 15 participants. Registrations will be accepted on a first come
first serve basis.

Dynamic acquisitions by CZT and PET will be observed and the facilitators will follow three different patients (2 on CZT cameras and 1 on PET) in real time as for their preparation, image acquisition and interpretation protocols as well as MBF and MFR calculations. Pitfalls and regulatory aspects will be covered as well in this course.
- Cardiac CZT methods (MPI vs dynamic acquisition), regulations and QCs
- Cardiac CZT and multipurpose CZT-CT protocols for image acquisition
- Interpretation of the scans
- How to resolve pitfalls
- Measurements of MBF and MFR by CZT and PET using adapted software
The target audience includes Nuclear Medicine Physicians and Cardiologists involved in the field of coronary artery disease.
It is necessary that participants have some experience in the field of myocardial perfusion imaging. The course coordinators therefore highly recommend following the online materials as listed hereunder:
- Hyafil F et al
- Agostini D et al EJNMMI 2016
- Sciagra R et al EJNMMI 2016
- Verberne H et al EJNMMI 2015
It is advised, but not compulsory, that participants have already attended a level-2 course from EANM or any other European Course on Cardio-Vascular Imaging.
