AJNR’s Case of the Week: Upcoming Improvements

The Case of the Week feature at AJNR.ORG is now established as an important educational activity with up the 10,000 views every month.  Thus I have asked Dr. Girish Fatterpekar from Mount Sinai Hospital in NYC to serve as Editor for it and I am glad that he has accepted this challenge.  Girish is already working on improving the format of the COWs with the purpose of packing in more information/education into them while retaining their simplicity and ease of navigation.  Additionally, he will be in charge of putting all of the cases posted every year into the form of an educational electronic presentation for our annual ASNR meeting (starting this year).  The COW will continue to be open to submissions from only Neuroradiology fellows world-wide.  Since most journals, including ours, have drastically reduced their numbers of case reports published, the COW gives fellows the opportunity to share with all of us unusual and/or educational cases.  Please submit your cases directly to Dr. Fatterpekar at: Girish.Fatterpekar@mssm.edu.  Comments and suggestions should also be directed to him.  I thank Dr. Fatterpekar for accepting to serve as Editor of this popular activity.
