    Execution is Everything

    Positron Emission Tomography (PET) has become the preferred test for diagnosing coronary artery disease. Although the clinical advantages are many, implementing a cardiac PET program requires planning, training, new technologies, and change management that can challenge CV leadership.

    In this episode we talk with two physicians who?ve led clinical and administrative leaders in the execution of cardiac PET programs, as well as myocardial blood flow (MBF). Cardiologist Gary Heller, MD, Medical Director of Molecular Imaging Services is the first physician to establish a PET program in Connecticut and has been involved in many other implementations since. And Richard Thompson, MD, cardiologist with Health First Medical Group, who championed the organization?s recent implementation of a cardiac PET program. - Mark Wilson, EVP of Sales & Business Development
