Thanks to the generosity of ASNC members, the first IANC Research Fellowship Grant ($50,000) was awarded at ASNC2018 to Krishna Patel, MD, to fund her project, “Patient-centered Reporting in Myocardial Perfusion Imaging: Development and Pilot-testing a Framework for Incorporating Patient-centered Decision Support in MPI Reports.”   Patel Research Award Winner 2018
Nuclear cardiac imaging has been proven to be a clinically effective approach in the diagnosis and prognosis of cardiovascular disease. A rich foundation of scientific evidence set the stage to demonstrate the value and role of nuclear cardiac image in a value based health care system. ASNC has taken and will continue to take a leadership role in developing and expanding the field. With the future in mind, ASNC has established the Institute for the Advancement of Nuclear Cardiology (IANC)  to enhance growth and innovation of nuclear cardiology and its professionals and patients. The IANC will provide a framework that will drive continued innovation and commitment to the field.
