Message from the ASNR22 Program Chair
Being held May 16-18, 2022, in New York City, we will gather at the New York Hilton Midtown, in tandem with the Symposium Neuroradiologicum (SNR) of the World Federation of Neuroradiological Societies, the quadrennial gathering of the world’s neuroradiologists and neuroimaging scientists.
The theme for the meeting is Reconnecting the Global Neuroradiology Community. Never in the history of our society have we been prevented from physically gathering together as we have these past two years. Our global ties – our connection as a global community – are more important than ever. However, we know that travel to New York may still not be possible for some. To that end, meeting attendance will be offered in a hybrid model, with both in person and virtual experiences available.
In person or virtually, #ASNR22 will afford all attendees the opportunity to learn the most up to date, best practices in neuroradiology through invited lectures, oral and electronic research presentations, and exhibits. As always, we will have dedicated specialty programming from the ASFNR, ASHNR, ASPNR, ASSR, and SNIS. Other planned topics include health policy, artificial intelligence applications, and health equity. Our popular “Reunion Night” will be returning on Monday, May 16, and there will be a joint reception for ASNR and SNR attendees on Sunday, May 15.
Dynamic, multicultural New York City will be the perfect place to reconnect. Broadway is reopening and the city’s “NYC Reawakens” initiative is supporting numerous new attractions, restaurants, exhibitions, and waterfront activities to make the City that Never Sleeps even more exhilarating. The host hotel is centrally located within walking distance of Central Park, Rockefeller Center, the Museum of Modern Art, Broadway, and much, much more. With three major international airports, including the newly-remodeled LaGuardia and Newark Liberty Airports, getting there is easy.
Come join our Diamond Jubilee celebration in the city where it all began 60 years ago. Reconnect with friends from around the world, get your continuing education needs met, and take a bite out of the Big Apple!

Message from the SNR 2022 Program Chairs
As the program chairs of SNR XXII we are looking forward to welcoming you to the next Symposium Neuroradiologicum of the World Federation of Neuroradiological Sciences [WFNRS], May 14-16, 2022. ASNR is hosting the symposium which is held every four years, and which, in 2022, will immediately precede the 60th Annual ASNR meeting. We do understand that with Covid-19, this has been an extraordinary 12 months, leading to much uncertainty, displacement, disconnection, and many lives lost. Our worldwide Neuroradiological community has been unable to connect and network and share our expertise and ideas in the ways that we have enjoyed in the past. Our goal for SNR XXII is to capitalize on the learnings we have acquired in this all-virtual world and provide a forum to exchange ideas, describe imaging challenges and share solutions for best clinical practice. Our preliminary program for SNR XXII has been prepared, and we look forward to sharing more of the details of how you can be part of this landmark meeting and learn and socialize in a safe environment.
We are carefully monitoring the COVID-19 infection rates and CDC guidelines to help us determine the final format but hope to be able to bring our Neuroradiology community together physically in New York City in 2022. We hope that SNR XXII and ASNR 2022 will be a time to reconnect and share the wealth of our collective knowledge in person.
Please mark your calendars for SNR XXII. We look forward to seeing you!
Mauricio Castillo, MD, FACR and Christine Glastonbury, MD
