This is a photo essay of new technologies and activities at the American Society of Nuclear Cardiology (ASNC) 2019 annual meeting. Each photo has its own caption explaining the image in detail.
The conference for the society of more than 4,200 members highlights the latest in cardiac nuclear imaging technology, techiques and new science. The 2019 meeting features advances in PET and SPECT nuclear imaging, new techniques such as quantitative myocardial perfusion flow reserve to add more information on whether a patient will benefit from revascularization, new radiotracers in development, and the renewed interest in cardiac amyloidosis imaging now that the FDA has cleared the first drug therapy.
