    • Breaking News - SCAI and the ACC Maryland Chapter recently wrote a letter to the Maryland Health Care Commission clarifying the ACC/AHA/SCAI Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) Guideline recommendation that interventional cardiologists perform at least 75 cases a year. The letter noted that a variety of valid reasons for not reaching the 75 case threshold may exist, including pregnancy, citing the 2011 SCAI WIN publication radiation safety for female cath lab operators and personnel.
