Join us to gain a deeper understanding of the landscape for physician reimbursement for cardiovascular and interventional procedures. We’ll offer a quick look at how CPT codes and RVUs are valued—and how physicians and leaders can proactively impact future rates.

Fresh off its $1.6 billion acquisition of Hitachi’s diagnostic imaging business, one of the biggest business deals in radiology history, Fujifilm is excited to provide attendees at RSNA 2021 with a sneak peek of its vision of the future.

The trend of bringing technology to patients is making its mark with bedside MR in neuro ICUs and EDs. Bedside brain scans are helping to guide care team decision-making and significantly reduce risks for patients and staff—especially considering that one in four intrahospital critical patient transports results in an adverse event.1 Join our panel of clinical and financial experts as they review ongoing problems with critical care neuroimaging. They will offer solutions that can reduce ICU and ED length of stay and explore the impact of bedside MR imaging on avoiding adverse events and improving patient outcomes and health system revenue and operations. As the experts tell us, the benefits are clinical, operational, and financial.

Just-released valvular heart disease guidelines favor transcatheter interventions for the right patient and more shared decision-making among heart teams, physicians and severe aortic stenosis patients with an eye toward types of valves and approaches, and lifetime benefits and risks.

The 2020 ACC/AHA Heart Valve Disease Guidelines mark a change from the 2014 version and 2017 focused update and open a path to more frequent revisions going forward. The guidelines also offer more evidence and insight for physicians on patients 65-80 and people over 80 for whom transfemoral TAVR is now an option.

This panel of five leading experts who treat VHD unpacks the changes around evaluating and testing patients with severe AS, treating patients at comprehensive valve centers, utilizing anticoagulants and why less invasive procedures have replaced surgery for many patients.

Recent experiences and events have had profound effects on how healthcare is prioritized and delivered. As provider organizations rethink how to best prepare for an evolving reality, one critical access hospital in a California ski mountain town embraces imaging technologies that accelerate care, drive change, and offer them the flexibility to pivot on a dime.

Physician burnout is an epidemic we cannot ignore. We know that administrative demands, especially those involving electronic health record systems, are significant contributors. The good news is, strategies of both a high-touch and high-tech nature are demonstrating great results in the fight against physician burnout. If you work in healthcare and are looking for solutions to physician burnout, this virtual roundtable is for you.

Learn from three TAVR experts how patients and health systems are benefiting from the use of intravascular lithotripsy (IVL) to maintain safe transfemoral TAVR in patients with complicated vascular access. 

The term cardiovascular information systems (CVIS) and cardiovascular picture and archive systems (CPACS) are often used interchangeably. CPACS is a commodity and a true CVIS is an asset that supports management, marketing, decision making and clinical excellence of the cardiovascular service line.

Learn from experts retooling interventional programs how to keep patients and staff safe as the pandemic is evolving. Gain practical insight on how health systems are prioritizing COVID-19 and non-COVID-19 patients and dealing with backlogged cases, minimizing the need for additional ICU beds, triaging clinical needs along with essential personnel plus resources, and expanding lines of communication pre-and post-procedure with patients and families.

Join a panel of experts to hear how technologies like graphic processing units (GPUs), cloud storage and artificial intelligence are changing the practice of radiology.
