SCAI MISSION: The Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions promotes excellence in invasive and interventional cardiovascular medicine through physician education and representation, and the advancement of quality standards to enhance patient care.
The Society for Cardiac Angiography and Interventions began in 1976 under the guidance of Drs. F. Mason Sones and Melvin P. Judkins. These scientists, whose contribution permitted the development and implementation of invasive cardiology, foresaw the need for an organization which would service and advance the discipline further.
The Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions (SCAI) is the primary professional association for invasive and interventional cardiologists.
