ASNC, IAC and SNMMI Call for Field to Focus on Radiation Dose Optimization in Nuclear Cardiology
Working in concert, the American Society of Nuclear Cardiology (ASNC), the IntersocietalAccreditation Commission (IAC)'s Nuclear/PET accreditation division and the Society of Nuclear Medicine inMolecular Imaging (SNMMI) are mandating optimized radiation doses in conjunction with the nuclear cardiology studies (i.e., myocardial perfusion imaging) performed throughout the United States and beyond.Read full press release
“ASNC is committed to supporting nuclear cardiac imaging labs' use of the lowest radiotracer dose that maintains
diagnostic image quality, in conjunction with application of Appropriate Use Criteria (AUC) and the use of count
recovery software for general SPECT cameras, new solid state SPECT cameras, and PET to provide the right test for
the right patient,” said Brian G. Abbott, MD, FACC, MASNC, ASNC President.
