ATTR Amyloidosis

SNMMI currently offers several educational activities and resources designed to educate nuclear medicine physicians, cardiologists, technologists, and trainees on more accurately diagnosing and managing ATTR using non-invasive nuclear cardiology imaging techniques. 

New! Educational Vignettes

SNMMI has produced a series of educational vignettes* on more accurately diagnosing and managing Cardiac Amyloidosis. These short video vignettes will supplement the innovative educational programing currently being offered, educating the nuclear medicine community on the necessary background and practical skills for acquisition and interpretation of nuclear scans for diagnosis of ATTR-CM. 

Vignette #1: What is Amyloidosis?

Just Added! Vignette #2: Cardiac Amyloidosis: Who is Affected

Just Added! Vignette #3: Cardiac Amyloidosis: Evaluating Patients with Suspected Cardiac Amyloidosis
