ASNC Teams Up With the International Atomic Energy Agency to Fight Global Heart Disease

The American Society of Nuclear Cardiology (ASNC) announced this week a partnership with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to boost efforts to improve the care of patients with cardiovascular disease (CVD) globally.
This partnership will facilitate access to nuclear cardiology training courses and educational materials for professionals in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). LMICs face the highest burden of CVDs, as more than 75 percent of all CVD deaths occur in these countries. The organizations will also collaborate on the development of interactive educational materials for the IAEA's website Human Health Campus.

“ASNC is very pleased to work as a partner with the IAEA in providing nuclear cardiology educational resources to help physicians worldwide provide the best care for their patients,” said ASNC President Raymond Russell, MD, FASNC. “This agreement sets the groundwork for future collaborative projects to improve further the delivery of nuclear cardiac testing.”
