Intracoronary physiology and imaging are two important adjunctive procedures used in defining and achieving optimal revascularization in patients with complex CAD. Angiography alone often incompletely defines lesion morphology and hemodynamic significance, so that lesions that initially appear significant may not be, and vice versa. To achieve optimal CAD and PCI outcomes, the contemporary interventionalist needs to be proficient in physiology and intravascular imaging performance and interpretation.
Join Drs. Brilakis, Riley, and Tremmel for an in-depth discussion about the role of coronary physiology and how intravascular imaging is used in diagnosing and treating complex CAD.
- Introduction, Dr. Riley
- How Intravascular Imaging Is Used in Treating Complex CAD, Dr. Brilakis
- The Role of Coronary Physiology in Diagnosing and Treating Complex CAD, Dr. Tremmel
The Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
The Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions designates this live activity for a maximum of 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditTM. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
Successful completion of this CME activity, which includes participation in the evaluation component, enables the participant to earn up to 1.0 medical knowledge MOC points in the American Board of Internal Medicine’s (ABIM) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program. Participants will earn MOC points equivalent to the amount of CME credits claimed for the activity. It is the CME activity provider’s responsibility to submit participant completion information to ACCME for the purpose of granting ABIM MOC credit.
