The mission of the American College of Cardiology is to transform cardiovascular care and improve heart health. The college is a 40,000-member medical society comprised of physicians, surgeons, nurses, physician assistants, pharmacists and practice managers. The college is a leader in the formulation of health policy, standards and guidelines. The ACC provides professional education, operates national registries to measure and improve quality of care, disseminates cardiovascular research, and bestows credentials upon cardiovascular specialists who meet stringent qualifications. cardiosource.org/ACC.
About ACC's portfolio of journals
Journal of the American College of Cardiology (JACC)
As the leader in its field, JACC publishes original peer-reviewed clinical and experimental reports on all aspects of cardiovascular disease. Topics covered include coronary artery and valve disease, congenital heart defects, vascular surgery, cardiomyopathy, drug treatment, new diagnostic techniques, findings from the laboratory, and large multicenter studies of new therapies. content.onlinejacc.orgJACC: Cardiovascular Imaging JACC: Cardiovascular Imaging provides readers with a broad, balanced view of all aspects of cardiovascular imaging. The journal includes original clinical research on non-invasive and invasive imaging techniques including echocardiography, CT, CMR, nuclear, optical imaging, and cine-angiography. Advances in basic science and molecular imaging which are likely to substantially influence the clinical practice of medicine in the next decade (in diagnostic performance, understanding of the athogenetic basis of the disease, and therapy) are also featured. Other content will emphasize imaging for the practicing cardiologist, advocacy and practice management, and state-of-the-art reviews. imaging.onlinejacc.org JACC: Cardiovascular Interventions JACC: Cardiovascular Interventions encompasses the entire field of interventional cardiovascular medicine, including cardiac (coronary and non-coronary) peripheral and cerebrovascular interventions. JACC: Cardiovascular Interventions publishes studies that will impact the practice of interventional cardiovascular medicine including: Clinical trials that provide evidence to inform and alter practice guidelines; experimental studies that point to improved technologies and mechanistic understanding; and in-depth discussions of topics of interest by respected experts in the field. interventions.onlinejacc.org About Elsevier
