The American Society of Nuclear Cardiology (ASNC) is the international leader in education, advocacy, and quality in cardiovascular imaging, with nearly 4,000 members worldwide. ASNC provides its members with a variety of continuing medical education programs related to nuclear cardiology and cardiovascular computed tomography (CT), promotes accreditation and certification in nuclear cardiology, establishes standards and guidelines for training and practice, and serves as a representative in health policy and the principal advocacy voice for professionals in the field.
 
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 these procedures. ASNC’s membership is composed of cardiologists, radiologists, physicians, scientists, technologists, imaging specialists, and other professionals dedicated to the science and practice of nuclear cardiology. ASNC’s members represent the top experts in the field and, as a result, ASNC consistently serves as a leading voice in education, research, quality standards and guidelines, and advocacy in cardiovascular imaging. 
 
Since its inception, ASNC has remained committed to its mission to provide professional education, establish standards and guidelines for training and practice, and serve as a representative in health policy forums on behalf of individuals in the nuclear cardiology field. ASNC’s strategic framework is firmly rooted in this mission and achieves its goals through: 
  • Guidelines & Clinical Standards
  • Professional Education
  • Research
  • Advocacy
