The Japanese Society of Nuclear Cardiology (JSNC) annual scientific meeting has a young investigator competition (YIA) session each year. The JSNC scientific committee selects the top 3 qualified abstracts submitted by JSNC members under age 40 who wish to receive the YIA. Given the high quality of presentations and content on the latest research topics, the YIA session is one of the highlights of the JSNC annual scientific meeting. Each of the 3 YIA candidates makes a presentation at the YIA session. At last year’s annual meeting, the scientific committee selected 2 clinical research abstracts and 1 technical research abstract. These 3 abstracts included the latest findings in nuclear cardiology on topics including risk stratification after coronary revascularization, myocardial blood flow quantification, and the performance of a new-generation single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) scanner.
