The Multimodality Imaging Learning Pathway at ACC.21 takes a different approach on issues within the world of imaging and moves away from viewing specific technologies as somewhat separate entities. Instead, the ACC.21 builds the program with a multimodality imaging perspective that considers the important role multimodality imaging plays as a whole in addressing challenges within patient care. The selection of sessions in the pathway demonstrates how diverse technologies and approaches driven by the common purpose of improving patient care can come together to provide improved patient outcomes, and it highlights new advances such as machine learning while still providing information in core knowledge areas.
Discuss the important role of imaging in the diagnosis and management of cardiovascular complications in COVID-19 patients (session 750) and review the impact of the pandemic on echo services and discuss key elements and innovations in approach to noninvasive cardiovascular imaging (session 619). Other sessions offer guidance and updates for those treating patients with cardiomyopathies, coronary microvascular or artery disease, and cancer.
Attendees will find that the program includes sessions on machine learning and the future of computer analysis in imaging (session 1050) or on multimodality imaging and modern media (session 664), as well as the basics for clinical care (session 802). Follow along as master clinicians highlight current uses of the various imaging modalities (session 766) or learn about the importance of understanding clinical utility and challenges of cardiac imaging in older adults (session 724).
The program is aimed at general cardiologists, but many specialists will find relevant sessions, and FITs and CVT members will appreciate the many sessions on the basics of imaging in various conditions. The ACC.21 Multimodality Imaging pathway offers an informative, interactive, innovative, and interdisciplinary program for all professionals. Attendees will be able to enhance their understanding of how to integrate test results into improving patient care and how to determine which test is best in certain clinical scenarios.
