Committee members

ICNC is organised by the American Society of Nuclear Cardiology (ASNC), the European Association of Nuclear Medicine (EANM), and the Nuclear Cardiology & CCT Section of the European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI)



When the Committees are created, we ensure an equal representation of all three groups so that the content echoes the global nature of the scientific programme. Additionally, our Committee Members are more than likely to be represented in the scientific programme as they have played an integral role in the field over the years and are highly revered by their peers.
