Target Audience

This course will be particularly relevant to internists, family physicians, cardiologists, and other health care providers who manage patients with common cardiac conditions.

Course Objectives

There has recently been rapid growth and development of cardiac imaging techniques, and it can be increasingly challenging to determine which imaging modalities are clinically useful for specific patients. There is also increasing interest in the appropriate use and selection of imaging tests. The goal of this course is to present and discuss recent options and appropriate roles for cardiac imaging that can be used by internists, primary care providers, and cardiologists to evaluate and manage patients with common cardiovascular conditions.

Upon completion of this course, the participant will be able to implement:

  • recent advances in cardiac imaging modalities and determine which procedures may provide the most clinical utility in specific cases
  • current noninvasive approaches to patients with chest pain and suspected coronary artery disease
  • optimal imaging strategies in individuals with suspected cardiovascular diseases
  • appropriate follow-up of patients with incidental findings noted on imaging tests
