WEDNESDAY, 28JUL2021 AT 12PM CDT

Join us as Drs. Timothy Bateman and James Case discuss how to implement a cardiac blood flow program. We will we cover what systems work (PET and PET/CT), different acquisition modes, available quality control tools, the importance of flow in patient management and review multiple cases. All this … AND a live question and answer session with the experts!

We hope you can make it!
