BETHESDA, MD (March 2017) The American Society of Nuclear Cardiology ASNC2017 Program Committee is now accepting abstract submissions for its 22nd Annual Scientific Session, held Sept. 14-17 in Kansas City, Mo. Deadline for submissions is Friday, April 21.

The Committee invites physicians, scientists, technologists, fellows and residents to submit original scientific abstracts for presentation at the meeting. The ASNC2017 Abstract Submissions Site is now open and will be available until the submission deadline on Friday, April 21 at 5:00 PM EST. 

New this year: monetary prizes for the top two clinical and top two basic science/technical posters. A committee will review all poster/e-poster presentations during the dedicated poster presentation times and select the top two abstracts in each category. The winners will be announced at the plenary session on Sunday, September 17. The prizes will be $500 for the two top presentations and $250 for the two runner-up presentations.

Abstract submitters who are in residency/fellows training programs or under the age of 35 have the option of having their abstracts considered for the oral Young Investigator Competition.
