SNMMI's Newly Approved Appropriate Use Criteria

Appropriate Use Criteria (AUC) are statements that contain indications describing when, and how often, an intervention should be performed under the auspices of scientific evidence, clinical judgment, and patient values while avoiding unnecessary provisions of services. SNMMI follows a balanced multidisciplinary approach to guidance development by including various stakeholders in the development process.
