ASNC

This channel contains news about the American Society of Nuclear Cardiology (ASNC), including coverage of its annual meeting and links to recently released practice guidelines. ASNC is a leading resource for the subspecialty of cardiac nuclear imaging (also called molecular imaging). Cardiac imaging with either PET or SPECT is primarily used for myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI), which shows area of areas of reduced blood flow due to ischemia or infarct.
