This Information Statement is entitled Guidance and Best Practices for Reestablishment of Non-Emergent Care in Nuclear Cardiology Laboratories during the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Pandemic: An Information Statement from ASNC, IAEA, and SNMMI. It serves as a followup to the previous Information Statement entitled Guidance and Best Practices for Nuclear Cardiology Laboratories during the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Pandemic: An Information Statement from ASNC and SNMMI. Whereas the previous Information Statement focused on considerations for nuclear cardiology laboratories during the pandemic, the present document focuses on reestablishment of non-emergent care as the laboratory begins to emerge from the period of peak infection.
Independent of this document, if you practice nuclear cardiology, please consider participating in INCAPS COVID, a worldwide survey of the impact of COVID-19 on nuclear cardiology and cardiac CT practice, being conducted by IAEA. The survey takes 5-10 minutes to complete. Participants are included in the INCAPS COVID Investigators Group for publications. Further details at bit.ly/incapscovid. Survey at bit.ly/iaeasurvey.
