INVIA Sponsors the Chinese Translation of ASNC’s SPECT Guideline

Wednesday, July 26, 2017

 INVIA News 

INVIA Medical Imaging Solutions supported the Chinese translations of the SPECT Guidelines as well as the Stress Protocols and Tracers Guidelines as promulgated by the American Society of Nuclear Cardiology (ASNC) and the Chinese Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (CSNM). The Chinese translations of these guidelines provide important information to nuclear medicine medical professionals in their native language.

Heart disease is one of the leading causes of death in the world. Non-invasive nuclear imaging technology plays a significant role in detecting and monitoring cardiac disease to better aid in patient management. The purpose of these guidelines is to assist nuclear medicine practitioners in recommending, performing, interpreting, and reporting the results of myocardial perfusion imaging studies. The SPECT Guidelines and the Stress Protocol and Tracers Guidelines outline the proper procedures and precautions for performing a myocardial perfusion imaging study. Abnormal perfusion scans are highly indicative of coronary artery disease and provide the data physicians need to prioritize the management of a patient’s care. The guidelines also provide a well-designed quality assurance (QA) program that tests the procedures in order to produce optimal results. If the guidelines are not followed, the accuracy of the images could hamper the image analysis by creating a false positive.

Nuclear imaging is available globally, yet the guidelines are only translated into a small number of languages. As the use of this technology expands globally, there will be a greater need to have the guidelines translated into more languages so physicians can better learn best practices and protocol in their native language. According to Dr. Edward Ficaro, President of INVIA Imaging Solutions “The SPECT Guideline and the Stress Protocol and Tracers Guideline are considered the most important guidelines for translation. It is necessary for physicians and scientists around the world to read in their native language to understand the details of nuclear cardiology.”

The SPECT Chinese guidelines are posted on the official websites of CSNM and ASNC, and physicians and technologists in China can freely download the document and use it as a daily reference in their practice. Also, CSNM has a yearly continuing education program on myocardial perfusion imaging studies (MPI) where nuclear cardiologists will use these guidelines as teaching tools for students.

INVIA was pleased to support both of these projects and applauds ASNC and CSNM for their continuous efforts to provide education and tools to physicians in China.
