ASNC2014 attendees will have opportunities to network with nuclear cardiology professionals, contribute to programs that promote innovation and quality in cardiology imaging; and display their latest products at this meeting through advertising, exhibiting, commercial support and educational grants.
New for 2014:
Maintenance of Certification (MOC) sessions will be available with audience response
capabilities. Attend the session and then complete the test for 10 points each. Attendees must be registered with ABIM to obtain MOC points.
- 2014 Update in Cardiovascular Disease module from the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM).
- A nuclear cardiology specific module (2014 American Society of Nuclear Cardiology MOC Module 1), submitted to ABIM for approval for an additional 10 MOC points.
New 2014 International Sessions:
For the first time ASNC2014 will have four international sessions that offer an opportunity to learn about multimodality imaging from the international community and how that view may differ from the U.S.-based approach. These must-attend sessions support a multimodality agenda featuring a collaborative educational and
research effort across many imaging disciplines to help promote a cost-effective, patient-centered approach to medical care.
- International Session I: Asian Perspectives of Nuclear Cardiology
- International Session II: Middle East Perspectives of Nuclear Cardiology
- International Session III: Latin American Perspectives of Nuclear Cardiology
- International Session IV: European Perspectives of Nuclear Cardiology - Joint Session with EANM
Additional Highlights Include:
- Expansion of Cardiovascular

- Increased CAD burden
- Cardiovascular Risk
- Outreach for international
- Case-based Ethics lunch session -- following each case presented by junior faculty, a panel of experts and ethicists will discuss and provide opinions on the case.
- International research presentations showcasing the best work from around the world.
- Policy and practice sessions co-sponsored by MedAxiom will discuss the impact of the changing health care environment and offer opportunities for discussion with experts.
- Numerous case-based sessions focused on concepts fundamental to the practice of nuclear cardiology, and expert panel discussions on cases submitted by fellows.
- Posters that will be available for review throughout the duration of the meeting.
The ASNC2014 program is developed for physicians preparing for the certification or recertification exam in nuclear cardiology, as well as physicians interested in a broad review of nuclear cardiology topics. The event is intended for cardiologists, radiologists, nuclear medicine specialists, practice administrators, nuclear technologists, nurses and other health care professionals with an interest in the field of nuclear cardiology and cardiac CT imaging.

Nuclear Cardiology Board Exam Preparation
ASNC is pleased to offer the Nuclear Cardiology Board Exam Preparation Course in conjunction with ASNC2014 at the Boston Seaport World Trade Center. The goal of this board review course is to prepare participants for the certification and recertification exam in nuclear cardiology. It increases learners’ knowledge and competence to treat patients with the appropriate cardiac nuclear imaging procedures. This course is designed for physicians preparing for the certification or recertification exam in nuclear cardiology as well as physicians interested in a broad review in nuclear cardiology topics.
