This table represents the relationships with industry that were disclosed at the time of peer review. It does not necessarily reflect relationships with industry at the time of publication. A person is deemed to have a significant interest in a business if the interest represents ownership of 5% or more of the voting stock or share of the business entity, or ownership of $10 000 or more of the fair market value of the business entity; or if funds received by the person from the business entity exceed 5% of the person's gross income for the previous year. A relationship is considered to be modest if it is less than significant under the preceding definition. Relationships in this table are modest unless otherwise noted. Names are listed in alphabetical order within each category of review.

ACC indicates American College of Cardiology; ACCF, American College of Cardiology Foundation; ACR, American College of Radiology; AHA, American Heart Association; ASE, American Society of Echocardiography; ASNC, American Society of Nuclear Cardiology; HRS, Heart Rhythm Society; NASCI, North American Society for Cardiovascular Imaging; SAIP, Society for Atherosclerosis Imaging and Prevention; SCMR, Society for Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance; and SIR, Society of Interventional Radiology.
