Online Educational Resources available at www.asnr.org
ASNR eCME features Neuroradiology lectures on timely topics, presented in most cases as Real Media streaming audio presentations with slide-show accompaniment. Materials represent either original submissions created specifically for ASNR eCME or captured live presentations from the ASNR Annual Meeting and NER Foundation Symposium. Topics are grouped as follows: Advanced Imaging Techniques, Brain-General Neuroradiology, Head and Neck, Interventional, Pediatrics, Spine, and Other. The ASNR is accredited by the ACCME to sponsor continuing medical education for physicians. The ASNR takes responsibility for the content quality and integrity of the CME activity.
Neurographics offers short reviews that emphasize a pictorial approach. On display are over 40 award-winning scientific exhibits presented at past ASNR Annual Meetings.
- Gold Medal Award given to individuals who have made outstanding contributions to Neuroradiology, and who have furthered, in an exceptional way, the mission of the ASNR.
- Outstanding Contributions in Research Award recognizes Neuroradiologists who demonstrate consistent excellence and lifelong accomplishment in basic or clinical neuroscience research, particularly funded research from the NIH, NSF, March of Dimes, etc.
- Cornelius G. Dyke Memorial Award given to assistant professors, fellows, or residents in Neuroradiology for excellence as demonstrated in a paper, which represents original, unpublished research in some aspect of Neuroradiology.
- ASNR Outstanding Presentation Awards selected at the Annual Meeting by the Education Committee and representatives from the allied specialty societies for best paper or poster presentation in Functional, Head and Neck, Interventional, Pediatrics, Spine, and General Neuroradiology. Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals, Inc. sponsors the Award given in General Neuroradiology.
