Haris Sair, MD

We are at a mini-milestone of a decade and a half! Please join me for the 15th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Functional Neuroradiology (ASFNR) from August 27 -30th, 2022 at the Hyatt Regency Resort and Spa, Maui, Hawaii.

From a society that initially focused primarily on blood oxygen level-dependent functional brain imaging, the ASFNR has continued to evolve and now encompasses a broad range of advanced neuroimaging, now focusing on cutting-edge brain imaging technology and research and their translational use.

The Annual Meeting accordingly will be an excellent venue for an in-depth, comprehensive update on advanced neuroimaging that will appeal to a broad audience, including neuroradiologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, physicians, neuropsychiatrists and psychologists, cognitive neuroscientists, biomedical engineers, clinical and research fellows, residents, doctoral and post-doctoral students, and radiology technologists.

We have expanded the meeting to take place over 4 days, to ensure adequate time for networking, supplemental programming, and of course for attendees to enjoy exploring the beautiful island of Maui.

Highlights of this year’s program include:

  • Dedicated discussion sessions at the end of each session with lecturers and expert panelists available to answer questions and offer expert insight into the topic presented

  • Sessions on functional MRI, diffusion MRI, MEG

  • Artificial intelligence in neuroradiology

  • Clinical applications of PET/MRI

  • Clinically focused sessions on advanced imaging in stroke and vascular imaging, dementia, epilepsy, brain tumors, head and neck, psychiatric imaging, and pediatric imaging

  • Cutting edge sessions on perfusion imaging, metabolic imaging, focused ultrasound, accelerated imaging, and molecular imaging

  • Specific programming for trainees, as well as networking events and a diversity gala

  • Pre-meeting BOLD and AI workshops, as well as member-initiated workshops

 

Maui, known as the “Valley Isle” and voted “Best Island in the U.S.” by Conde Nast Traveler readers for more than 20 years, provides a stunning backdrop to the extensive exchange of knowledge that will occur during the meeting. Lay on the beach, and let your brain digest that knowledge under the shimmering sun. Ride a bike through the sweeping valleys of the island while contemplating the next big idea for brain imaging. Come enjoy a cerebral and physical experience you will not forget.

Aloha - I look forward to seeing you in Maui in August!

The 2022 ASFNR Meeting

Learn the latest in functional neuroradiology and interact with your colleagues who share your interest of advanced neuroimaging by attending the ASFNR Annual Meeting, which will feature an in-depth and comprehensive update on advanced neuroimaging. As you can see from the list above, the topics covered to appeal to a broad range of neuroradiologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, physicists, neuropsychiatrists and psychologists, cognitive neuroscientists, biomedical engineers, clinical and research fellows, residents, doctoral and postdoctoral students, and radiology technologists.

ASFNR encompasses everything that is cutting edge and on the forefront of neuroimaging, including:

  • Artificial intelligence and machine learning in personalized medicine, image quality, and its application to diagnostic image interpretation

  • An AI challenge that will see different academic groups and companies compete around detecting urgent abnormalities on head CTs

  • Emerging imaging technologies such as PET-MRI, 7T imaging, magnetic particle imaging, and MR-guided focused ultrasound

  • 3D printing

  • Perfusion imaging, including DSC, DCE, ASL, and intravoxel incoherent motion for stroke and brain tumor

  • Advances in diffusion MR imaging including microstructural and microdynamic MR and updates on BOLD fMRI and resting state fMRI, including but not limited to traumatic brain injury applications

  • Neuropsychiatric MR imaging including addiction, connectivity, neurogenetics, and transcranial magnetic stimulation

  • New insights into neurodegeneration, including the glymphatic system, cerebrovascular reactivity, iron, and microglia

  • New insights into neurodegeneration, including the glymphatic system, cerebrovascular reactivity, iron, and microglia

  • Emerging technology from rapid MR acquisitions, metabolic imaging and bioscales, and myelin mapping to advanced neuroimaging of the spine

  • Pediatric neuroimaging centered on normal and abnormal connectivity from the neonatal period through adolescence

  • Advanced neuroimaging for head and neck, and spine pathology

  • Study groups about diffusion/perfusion imaging, BOLD imaging, AI and advanced pediatric neuroimaging

ASNR/ASFNR AI Workshop

ASNR and ASFNR continue to partner to offer an AI education program to train neuroradiologists and make them effective leaders and collaborators in AI projects focusing on neuroimaging.

The goals of this education program are to:

  1. Serve as a hands-on introductory workshop to AI and deep learning in neuroradiology

  2. Allow attendees to understand and critically evaluate literature in AI and neuroradiology

  3. Allow attendees to set up and conduct a basic research project using AI.

 

This education program will consist of prerequisite work, two workshops (May 14-15 at ASNR22 in New York and August 26 at ASFNR 2022 in Maui), and a project to be conducted in between the two workshops. Hybrid access will be available for in-person and virtual attendance at both sessions.
