  • Location Online
  • Organised by Cardiology

This webinar is an opportunity to learn how to image patients with heart disease and to discover more about heart failure. Four leaders in their various fields will present four cases to allow participants to see how imaging is of use in patients with heart failure.

During this webinar you will:

  • Know how the various imaging modalities can be used to help in the investigation of heart failure 
  • Be able to think about the differential diagnosis of the heart failure patient  
  • Understand some of the nuanced differences between imaging of different heart failure aetiologies  

A CPD certificate with CPD credit will be issued to those joining the webinar live as well as those who watch the recording afterwards. Certificates will be issued 7 days after the webinar to those who watch it live and after 30 days for those that watch the recording.

Key speakers

Dr Sohaib Nazir

NIHR Clinical Lecturer, King’s College London and Royal Brompton Hospital

Speaker's biography

Dr Sohaib Nazir is an NIHR clinical lecturer and cardiology registrar at King’s College London. He undertook a PhD at King’s College London in Cardiac PET-MR imaging. His passion lies with cross-sectional imaging with CT, CMR and PET, particularly for the assessment of coronary artery disease. In particular, he has an interest in coronary imaging, myocardial perfusion and novel PET tracers. These emerging techniques require validation prior to implementation into clinical routine, and he is currently leading on several research studies for the evaluation of these novel techniques, for which he hopes will lead to improved diagnostic tools and benefit for patients.
