The American Society of Nuclear Cardiology (ASNC) is a non-profit professional association devoted to the study of nuclear cardiology and cardiovascular computed tomography, which are subsets of nuclear medicine. With more than 4,500 members worldwide, ASNC is the international leader in education, advocacy, and quality in cardiovascular imaging. ASNC's mission is to provide professional education, establish standards and guidelines for practice and training, and serve as a representative in health policy forums for individuals in the nuclear cardiology field. The Society also promotes accreditation and certification in nuclear cardiology, and provides its members with a variety of continuing medical education (CME/CE) programs related to nuclear cardiology and cardiovascular computed tomography (CT).
ASNC was founded in 1993 by a group of nuclear cardiology specialists who sensed the need for a professional society dedicated solely to the needs of those who perform cardiac imaging procedures. ASNC’s membership is composed of cardiologists, physicians, scientists, technologists, radiologists, imaging specialists, and other professionals dedicated to the science and practice of nuclear cardiology. ASNC’s members represent the top talent and expertise in the field, and as a result, ASNC consistently serves as a leading voice in education, research, quality standards, practice guidelines, and advocacy in cardiovascular imaging.
The official publication of the American Society of Nuclear Cardiology is the Journal of Nuclear Cardiology.
