Learner Objectives
Upon completion of this module, learner will be able to: 
  • Understand the relationship between cardiac FDG PET imaging patterns and the likelihood of cardiac sarcoidosis
  • Describe the optimal patient preparation for cardiac FDG PET imaging for cardiac sarcoidosis
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the complementary use of cardiac FDG PET and cardiac MRI imaging in the diagnosis and risk assessment of cardiac sarcoidosis
  • Formulate treatment plans for patients with suspected cardiac sarcoidosis informed by the results of cardiac imaging.
Overall Goal
The overall goal of this activity is to provide a comprehensive review of nuclear cardiology imaging procedures and best practices and increase physicians’ competence and performance in their ability to improve cardiovascular disease outcomes.
Statement of Need
An estimated 80 Million American adults (approximately 1 in 3) have 1 or more types of cardiovascular disease (CVD) with over 30 Million estimated to be under 60 years of age. According to the Centers for Disease Control “Heart Disease Fact Sheet”, in 2006 heart disease was the leading cause of death for both men and women and a total of 26%—or more than one in every four—of all deaths were caused by heart disease. Further, in the United States, one person has a heart attack every 34 seconds and one person dies from a heart disease-related event every minute.
