Moments from ASNC2017: Dr. Michael Freeman Honored; Top Sessions

Michael Freeman, MD, a nuclear cardiologist whose career spanned four decades, passed away on Sept. 3. 

In the weeks since, the nuclear cardiology community has mourned the loss of a brilliant and generous physician, a leader, a teacher and a model to emulate. ASNC was fortunate to have worked with Dr. Freeman for years. In his role as a member of the Board of Directors and many committees, he gifted the ASNC with his time, efforts and insights. ASNC is stronger for having worked with Dr. Freeman and learned from him.

When ASNC members and friends gathered at the 22nd Annual Scientific Session in Kansas City, Mo., we honored Dr. Freeman and gave thanks for his friendship. We offer our condolences and support to his family. They suggest that memorials be made with donations to St. Michael's Hospital, where Dr. Freeman cared for patients since 1980. Condolences may be shared via rskane.ca.  

Top sessions for attendance:

  • Controversies in Clinical Cardiology and Cardiac Imaging
  • Debate: Clash of the Titan
  • Multimodality Imaging in the Diagnosis and Management of Heart Failure
  • Opening Plenary and Verani Lecture
  • How to Incorporate Test Findings Beyond Perfusion

ASNC2017 networking opportunities were "extremely valuable," -attendee Dr. Edward Hulten, FASNC

The society honored a number of members and friends who have contributed to the ASNC's mission and led the way with their service and commitment to excellence.
