This site serves as primary source verification for the NBE. Certification status is updated to this system within 14 days of notification to physicians. Name and geographical information are updated within 24 hours of a change to our primary database.

This site does not provide primary source verification for those physicians who hold diplomate or testamur status in either or both of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography and Nuclear Cardiology. To verify certification status please visit: http://cccvi.org/certification/index.cfm.

All effort is made to avoid error. However, if there is a question about the information contained on our site, please provide our office with a signed authorization to release information for the physician in question and we will provide verification of his/her status.

 Primary Source Verification

  • Testamur - An individual who has successfully passed the ASCeXAM, PTEeXAM, ReASCE, or RePTE examination and has chosen not to apply for certification.
  • Diplomate - An individual who has successfully passed the ASCeXAM, PTEeXAM, ReASCE, or RePTE examination and has provided documentation of their education and level of service, and satisfied the other requirements set by the NBE.
  • Recertification Maintenance for Testamurs or Diplomates of the ASCeXAM or PTEeXAM - Testamurs and Diplomates are required to take the recertification examination in either the 9th, 10th, or 11th year surrounding their 10-year anniversary date to maintain their status with the NBE.
    • Early - Testamurs and Diplomates will take or have passed the recertification examination in their 9th year surrounding their 10-year anniversary date.
    • On Time - Testamurs and Diplomates will take or have passed the recertification examination in their 10th year surrounding their 10-year anniversary date.
    • Graced - Testamurs and Diplomates will take or have passed the recertification examination in their 11th year surrounding their 10-year anniversary date. The NBE allows individuals an extra year after their 10-year anniversary date to take recertification examination before certification status has lapsed.
  • Indefinite - Testamur status is valid indefinitely.
