The EANM Cardiovascular Committee (CC) consists of members of the EANM who are mostly physicians from different countries experienced in nuclear medicine techniques applied to the investigation of the cardiovascular system.
New members of the Committee are recruited regularly via open calls through the EANM office. The election of new members is based on knowledge and experience but as well on the aim to keep both a geographical as well as gender balance.
- The CC has been set up by EANM for the purpose of developing and disseminating guidelines and recommendations for nuclear cardiology procedures providing information, education and training to people interested in nuclear cardiology. Therefore, the Committee has a guideline representative that takes care of the drafting and editing process.
- The EANM Scientific Programme Representative is responsible for the planning and organization of the scientific and continuous medical education programme of the EANM Annual Congresses.
- A further commitment of the Committee is to provide regular information on developments in molecular imaging and advanced imaging technologies applied to nuclear cardiology field to other EANM organs. These tasks are taken care of by a dedicated website/public relations representative in close collaboration with the Chair of the CC.
- In addition to that the CC collaborates with other scientific societies involved in the field such as the European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI), the American Society of Nuclear Cardiology (ASNC), the Japanese Society of Nuclear Medicine (JSNM) and it is involved in the International Conference on Nuclear Cardiology and Cardiac CT (ICNC) organization.
