This mini-review highlights cardiovascular studies that were presented during the 2018 Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI) annual meeting in Philadelphia. The aim of this review is to inform readers about several noteworthy studies reported at the meeting. Although cardiovascular application of PET and SPECT are not the primary focus of the SNMMI, several scientific teams working in this field presented their latest scientific findings at this meeting. The review therefore aims to inform the readers who did not attend the SNMMI annual meeting about some interesting new concepts presented this year at the conference.
