Columbia Cardiac Amyloid Review & Practicum: Pyrophosphate Cardiac Imaging covers topics such as:
Evaluation and management of patients with various forms of cardiac amyloidosis with a focus on distinguishing light chain amyloid from transthyretin given their differences with regard to affected patient populations, natural histories, therapies and genetics
Patient populations who are appropriate candidates for test administrations
Practical scan interpretation with a focus on major pitfalls to avoid in test performance and interpretation
Imaging procedure along with methods for scan interpretation including both semi-quantitative and quantitative scoring techniques as well as appropriate reporting of results
