Target Audience:

The Foundation of the ASNR Symposium 2018 will focus on adding value and improving healthcare in neuroradiology. It will center on how neuroimaging adds value in many subspecialty areas, including brain, spine, head & neck, pediatric and neurointerventional procedures. The target audience will include practicing neuroradiologists, other radiologists charged with interpreting neuroimaging studies, radiology fellows andresidents, neuroscientists interested in the latest advances, and non-radiology colleagues whose practices include neuroimaging. Dedicated topic areas include screening and diagnostic neuroimaging, evidence based neurointerventional treatment, emergency neuroimaging use and usefulness, advanced imaging strategies, and healthcare reform.
