The Value of FASNC 

Earning ASNC Fellowship is a major career achievement that opens doors for ASNC’s physician, scientist, technologist and physicist members. The FASNC designation communicates your commitment to optimal imaging and nuclear cardiology practice.

Here are just a few reasons members value their FASNC:  
“FASNC carries with it a special stamp of someone who has completed formal training in nuclear cardiology and passed the certification examination to demonstrate competency. All FASNC applications are reviewed and approved by the Board of Directors, which is a testament of value of the designation. FASNC helps me identify the commitment to quality and excellence that I seek when I look for other nuclear cardiologists with expertise. I encourage physicians practicing nuclear cardiology to achieve the FASNC designation, identifying them as an integral part of the nuclear cardiology community and demonstrating their commitment to high-quality nuclear cardiology practice.”
