Debate: Clash of the Titans


Sep 16, 2017 1:30pm ‐ Sep 16, 2017 3:00pm

Description

Moderators: Lawrence M. Phillips, MD, FASNC; L. Samuel Wann, MD

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize the utility of FFR guided revascularization
  • Understand that in 4000 sequential cardiac PETs, the Coronary Flow Capacity combining stress perfusion and CFR uniquely identifies patients for whom PCI/CABG significantly reduces MI and mortality by 54% over long term follow up and eliminates 70% to 90% of low benefit invasive procedures or other tests including patients with known or advanced CAD with low risk disease by PET that are optimally treated medically
  • Understand the mechanisms that can produce mis-registration between CT attenuation and PET emission images and cause artifacts
