What is a nuclear cardiologist?
2 Attachment(s)
According to the American Society of Nuclear Cardiology, "A nuclear cardiologist is a physician who has been trained and qualified to perform and interpret nuclear cardiology studies. These physicians may have certification in cardiology, internal medicine, nuclear medicine, radiology or other related fields, with special training in nuclear cardiology and cardiovascular imaging."

What training is involved/required for doing a nuclear test?

ASNC, in cooperation with the American College of Cardiology, has developed guidelines for physician training in nuclear cardiology. These are available on the and websites. Another valuable document is ASNC's statement on physician training titled The Knowledge Base for Nuclear Cardiology Training.

See the attached document for a FAQ from the American Society of Nuclear Cardiology
