    SecondsCount Editorial Board

    SecondsCount.org is developed and maintained by the Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions (SCAI), the leading professional medical society for invasive and interventional cardiologists. SCAI’s mission is to promote excellence in invasive and interventional cardiovascular medicine through education of both healthcare providers and patients, representation, development of guidelines, and advancement of quality and safety standards.

    SCAI members who meet establishedperformance standards and receive excellent peer recommendations can achieve the status of FSCAI, which stands for Fellow of the Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions. When you see the FSCAI designation associated with your doctor’s name, you can be assured that he or she is committed to excellence and quality care.

    The SecondsCount Editorial Board is a team of highly accomplished SCAI members and their cath lab teams who personally oversee the content and development of this website. They invite your feedback at info@SCAI.org.
