This isa particularly important annual meeting, as ASNC celebrates its20thanniversary. Please join physicians, scientists, technologists,nurses, industry and many others from around the world in thiscelebration. This year’s program highlights the many excitingdevelopments in the field of nuclear cardiology, and is designedto offer value to attendees of all levels of expertise and seniority.Sessions include:n The 2013 Mario Verani lecture by Dr. Timothy Bateman, and the 20th anniversaryplenary session.n Numerous case-based sessions focused on concepts fundamental to the practice ofnuclear cardiology, and expert panel discussions on cases submitted by attendees. Anew offering this year is the opportunity to earn MOC credit.n International research presentations showcasing the best work in the field.n Policy and practice sessions which will discuss the impact of the changing healthcareenvironment, and offer opportunities for discussion with experts.n A new track, entitled Patient-Centered Multimodality Imaging, along with joint sessionswith professional imaging societies, will discuss the relative merits of individual and hybridimaging approaches to address specific pathophysiology.Also, be sure not to miss the entertainment at the Jeopardy and Great Debates sessions,and the gala dinner on Saturday night. I invite you to share the excitement of ASNC2013!Sincerely,Prem Soman, MD, PhD, FASNCASNC2013 Program ChairAs the only professional organization dedicated to the dynamic specialty of nuclear cardiology, the AmericanSociety of Nuclear Cardiology (ASNC) offers an Annual Meeting that addresses emerging research, newtechnology, and advances in treatment. Member and non-member cardiologists, physicians, scientists,radiologists, technologists, imaging specialists, and other professionals from around the world attend thisimportant event each year. ASNC supports a multimodality agenda, featuring a collaborative educational andresearch effort across the many imaging disciplines in order to promote a cost-effective, patient-centeredapproach to medical care.There are numerous opportunities for organizations to build relationships with nuclear cardiologyprofessionals, contribute to programs that promote innovation and quality in cardiovascular imaging, anddisplay their latest products at ASNC’s Annual Meeting through advertising, exhibiting, providing commercialsupport, and/or providing educational sponsorships or grants.
