The IHIWG (International Hydrocephalus Imaging Working Group) consists of neuroradiologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, bioengineers, and basic scientists who meet twice a year in conjunction with ASNR and ISHCSF (International Society for Hydrocephalus and CSF Disorders) for a 2-day meeting that addresses all forms of hydrocephalus including DESH (Disproportionately Enlarged Subarachnoid Space Hydrocephalus) with emphasis on imaging NPH. Additionally, the group discusses phase contrast techniques to measure blood and CSF flow out of the brain and to dynamically model it and predict intracranial pressure. Reviews CSF production and resorption, role of aquaporins, and CSF flow measurements to study Chiari I malformations as … Continue reading >>

Readers of the AJNR are encouraged to access the International Stroke Journal and read the editorial on C. Miller Fisher, MD, which is available free of charge. The editorial was written by Robert Ackerman, MD, who, along with his colleagues at MGH, developed a strong relationship with Dr. Fisher. Importantly, it is worth noting the contributions that Dr. Fisher made to the field of Neurology and how these have impacted the specialty of Neuroradiology.… Continue reading >>
ASNR was in charge of all neuroradiology-related conferences at the Colombian Congress of Radiology held in Cartagena, August 4-6. Representing ASNR were Drs. Christine Glastonbury, Walter Bartynski, Mauricio Castillo, Meng Law, Rafael Rojas, and Javier Romero. The meeting drew nearly 1500 participants, and 170 didactic conferences were given.
During the inaugural ceremony, Dr. Castillo gave a short talk on ASNR and its importance. It is to be noted that the ASNR logo was prominently displayed in the main auditorium and conference rooms as well as in the program. Advertisements for our next annual meeting appeared in their daily meeting newsletter.… Continue reading >>
ASNR and AJNR are pleased to join efforts with other imaging-related journals and their scientific societies that have training programs on editorial aspects for trainees or junior staff (3-5 years after training) such as Radiology (Olmsted fellowship), AJR (Figley and Rogers fellowships [USA and international respectively), and Radiologia (from Spain).
- Increase interest in “editorial” and publication-related activities in younger individuals.
- Increase understanding and participation in the AJNR review process.
- Incorporate into AJNR’s Editorial Board younger individuals who have previous experience in the review and publication process.
- Fill a specific need in Neuroradiology not offered by other similar fellowships.
This short presentation highlights the individuals present during our Past Presidents Dinner held during the 50th anniversary meeting of ASNR in New York City:
