The Cardiovascular Council consists of Society members interested in the performance and application of cardiovascular nuclear medicine procedures. It seeks to provide a forum for discussion and development of cardiac scintigraphic methods in an effort to realize the most beneficial applications. The Council actively seeks individuals who share this goal.

2021 SNMMI CVC President’s Message
I am honored to be the SNMMI CVC President for 2021-2022. The Cardiovascular Council is one of the premier, member-driven nuclear cardiology imaging societies in the world. The CVC goals include the promotion and dissemination of high-quality cardiovascular imaging science, educating providers and patients on the benefits of cardiovascular nuclear imaging, developing the next generation of leaders in cardiovascular imaging, and advocacy for value-added cardiovascular imaging healthcare policy. I encourage you to attend our meetings and volunteer to get involved with SNMMI and the Cardiovascular Council!

The Society recognizes the need for sub-specialty interests/expertise within the field of nuclear medicine and moleuclar imaging. Councils provide the expertise, professional networking and educational programs for nuclear medicine professionals in respective areas and serve as a resource for development and implementatin of Society policies.
Council membership is voluntary. Councils adhere to Society Bylaws and policies, while operating under its own Operating Procedures, as approved by the House of Delegates, and its own business plan and budget, as approved by the SNMMI Board of Directors.
This secion provides the following council specific information.
The Cardiovascular Council (CVC) works to serve and be a resource for members of the council itself who have special interest and expertise in the field of cardiovascular nuclear medicine, as well as to SNMMI as a whole in its missions and endeavors.
As part of its mission, the CVC organizes scientific and continuing education sessions at the Mid Winter Meeting and the Annual Meeting of the Society. These activities are for members of the council and for the SNMMI membership at large, and they are also open to participation and attendance by people from outside the SNMMI. The CVC also supports additional programs on specialized topics, such as cardiac PET/CT, CV Molecular Imaging and Cost Effectiveness Research. News and activities of the CVC are circulated to council members in a semi-annual newsletter. This and other professional information will also be available through the CVC webpage, and efforts underway to expand awareness of cardiovascular nuclear medicine studies to patients and providers via Outreach links through the SNMMI website.
Don’t Wait! Join Now!
The investment to join the Cardiovascular Council is minimal – only $20 annually. Your membership dollars help us immensely in sponsoring quality programs while promoting medical education, research and patient care related to Cardiovascular Nuclear Medicine.
Emerging technologies, the latest clinical applications, best practices, and more are waiting for you. The 2022 SNMMI Mid-Winter and ACNM Annual Meeting will feature three educational tracks highlighting the latest innovations and techniques in the field, including a dedicated track on nuclear cardiology.
ACNM invites you to submit an original clinical or scientific abstract for the opportunity to present your research during the 2022 SNMMI Mid-Winter and ACNM Annual Meeting in Orlando, Florida.
Abstract submissions from young professionals, including those in training or in practice within 10 years of graduation are strongly encouraged.
