Vote for the Best Nuclear Cardiology Choosing Wisely Challenge Proposal
ASNC challenged the Nuclear Cardiology community to share solutions supporting its goal of ensuring patients get the right test at the right time, and you responded! The Society's first Nuclear Cardiology Choosing Wisely® Challenge drew a range of creative, original and implementable proposals from nuclear cardiology teams from across the United States.A panel of judges has narrowed the field to three contestants whose proposals earned them the opportunity to compete face-to-face for a cash prize as well as unique opportunities to advance the Nuclear Cardiology specialty.
YOU CHOOSE THE WINNER! Mark your calendar for Saturday, Sept. 24, in Boca Raton, Fla., during the ASNC2016 Scientific Sessions. That's when the ASNC community will gather for a special session. The Challenge finalists will present their proposals and field your questions. That's right—you'll challenge the Challengers and then vote to decide the winner.
