Procedure standards help identify elements of the procedure that are most important in obtaining a high-quality examination, while simultaneously controlling costs. Use of standardized procedures will increase the applicability of clinical research among multiple institutions, in turn, increasing the value of research studies, particularly in the field of technology assessment. SNMMI offers procedure standards in the following areas:

SNMMI currently offers several educational activities and resources designed to educate nuclear medicine physicians, cardiologists, technologists, and trainees on more accurately diagnosing and managing ATTR-CM using non-invasive nuclear cardiology imaging techniques. Learn more.
Maintenance of Certification (MOC) is a comprehensive programs to assess the ongoing competence of physician specialists and their ability to provide quality health care in six general competencies:
• Medical knowledge
• Patient care
• Interpersonal and communication skills
• Practice-based learning and improvements
• System-based practice
In the past, the certification process required successful completion of an approved educational program, an unrestricted medical license as evidence of professional standing, and passing the certification examination. Now nuclear medicine professionals can no longer simply take an exam to renew a certificate; lifelong learning must be documented.
The American Board of Nuclear Medicine (ABNM) MOC program is a process designed to document that nuclear medicine physicians maintain the necessary competencies to provide quality patient care in nuclear medicine. It is now an ongoing process and will require the assessment and improvement of practice performance by nuclear medicine physicians, as well as other physician specialists who wish to be certified, and/or maintain their certification, in nuclear medicine.
Complimentary Journal SAM access is now available exclusively for SNMMI Members. Take advantage of this great new benefit and meet your Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Part II Self Assessment program requirements.
SNMMI educational programs are designed to meet the professional development needs of physicians, as well as providing opportunities to satisfy continuing medical education (CME) requirements, including Maintenance of Certification (MOC) requirements.
Additional Educational Activities and Resources Include:
Courses and Meetings
CT Case Review
Other Activities and Resources
Research published in the January issue of JNM has confirmed the accuracy of the European Association of Urology risk classification system that groups prostate cancer patients based on their risk of recurrence.
On January 11, CMS announced that it proposes to cover FDA-approved monoclonal antibodies directed against amyloid for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease under CED in CMS-approved randomized controlled trials. SNMMI reacts.
When assessed together in an AI model, coronary F-18 NaF uptake on PET and quantitative coronary plaque characteristics on CT angiography were found to provide risk prediction superior to that of clinical data alone.
SNMMI and peer medical groups have issued AUC for PSMA PET imaging. Published in the January issue of JNM, the criteria are the product of an international multidisciplinary panel of expert healthcare providers.
SNMMI—the leader in radiopharmaceutical therapy education and resources—is excited to announce the launch of a new therapy-focused web portal for members, researchers, the medical community, and patients.
This portal has been created as a repository for all things therapy, providing you with direct access to SNMMI's comprehensive content in one location. We encourage you to bookmark this page for direct access to therapy-related content, including:
SNMMI monitors multiple federal legislative issues and provides resources including issue summaries, letters to Congress, and analysis. Most of this information is in the government relations news section of this web site.
Tools, supported by evidence, to harmonize the practice of nuclear medicine using a progressive and safe approach.
