The Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions promotes excellence in invasive and interventional cardiovascular medicine through education and representation, and the advancement of quality standards to enhance patient care. SCAI now has a membership of over 4,300 invasive/interventional cardiologists and cath lab team members. There are currently approximately 17 committees, which are open to all members. Focus areas for SCAI include establishing standards and guidelines for all aspects of cardiac catheterization and angiography, training, credentialing, safety, and quality assurance for cardiovascular procedures.
