About CBNC and APCA

The Certification Board of Nuclear Cardiology (CBNC) was established in 1996 to develop and administer practice-related examination in the field of Nuclear Cardiology and to award certification to those physicians who successfully complete the CBNC examination process.  The objective of the CBNC certification program is to support optimal patient care and enhancement of the field through a certification program that promotes quality, professionalism and practice-based learning and improvement.

On December 31, 2015, the former Council for Certification in Cardiovascular Imaging (CCCVI) signed a merger agreement with The American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography© (ARDMS©).  On January 1, 2016, a new physician certification organization named the Alliance for Physician Certifiation and AdvancementTM (APCATM) was created.  APCA exclusively serves the physician community and support its enduring commitment to continual learning and providing high-quality and compassionate patient care through certification.

The Certification Board of Nuclear Cardiology (CBNC) and the Certification Board of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography (CBCCT) are now members of the APCATM family of certification programs.
