The ability to provide patients with an early, accurate diagnosis for neurodegenerative movement disorders, such as Parkinson’s Disease, has been an on-going challenge that can take up to six years because of the dependence on symptom presentation. Unfortunately symptom presentation varies with patients. Also, other movement disorders, such as essential tremor, have similar symptoms, but they occur in different areas of the brain and do not involve the dopamine system.  Now, the FDA has approved DaTscan, an imaging agent developed that can detect the presence of dopamine transporters (DaT) in the brain which allows physicians to diagnose and begin the correct course much earlier in the disease process. The ability to provide patients with an early, accurate diagnosis for neurodegenerative movement disorders, such as Parkinson’s Disease, has been an on-going challenge that can take up to six years because of the dependence on symptom presentation. Learn about Parkinson's Disease and Essential Tremors (ET), and the use of DaTscan in diagnosis.

Welcome to echelon's Cardiac Electrophysiology Review for Nuclear Medicine Technology or ECG course. Before we can discuss the process of conducting an electrocardiogram, we must first review the heart's anatomy and physiology, as well as its electrophysiology. After all, the heart is more than a muscle comprised of a complex network of supporting arteries and veins. It's an electrical system.

Learning exactly how this complex muscle works is key to understanding the process of properly conducting and interpreting a dysrhythmia or abnormal heart rhythm. While complex in design, the function of the heart is quite simple-it's a muscular pump that moves the blood throughout the body, sustaining the body's metabolic needs. This course provides a comprehensive guide to dysrhythmias commonly manifested by imaging patients.
