From the Program Chair:
Instead of a long-winded essay on why you should come to Savannah, and in the spirit of the non-traditional formats that will be highlighted at the 52nd
annual meeting, I offer you a Top 5 list.
Top 5 Reasons to Come to the 52nd Annual Meeting of the ASHNR in
The program contains several Top 5 sessions! Other non-traditional formats include short bites on difficult anatomy, and a staging workshop using the new AJCC 8th
Edition. The “H&N Top 5: Practice Improvement Edition” will showcase our experts’ best advice for avoiding cognitive errors, improving our workplace and workflow, tweaking our H&N protocols, and avoiding radiologist burnout.
Further cementing the meeting’s reputation as the premier event for H&N education, we will, for the first time, have a series of lectures designated as “Core Curriculum” covering the most basic topics in H&N imaging, such as sinuses, orbits, temporal bone, H&N glands and the H&N spaces. And, because more and more of us are doing it, there’s a session on ENT emergencies entitled “12 a.m. H&N Radiology.”
Savannah is an AWESOME city, with 22 tree-lined squares in its gorgeous Historic District, lots of Spanish moss, fantastic restaurants, excellent museums, and atmospheric cemeteries (à la Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil). It’s also easily accessible non-stop from ORD/LGA/DFW/IAH/ATL/BOS and others.
Our meeting hotel is a full-on resort on an island in the Savannah River, but it’s minutes away from the heart of downtown by free ferry leaving every 15 min from the resort’s marina (or by Uber over the nearby bridge). There’s a riverside pool and hot tub, as well as tennis, spa and a world-class golf course, where we will host the first-ever ASHNR golf tournament!
And, Finally, The #1 Reason to Attend the 52nd Annual ASHNR Meeting in Savannah, Georgia:
The chance to reconnect with old friends, and make lots of new ones, in the friendliest radiology society around!
See y’all in September in sunny Savannah!!

About The ASHNR Annual Meeting
The ASHNR Annual Meeting is the premier national event for head and neck imaging and will be held in Savannah, Georgia from September 26-30, 2018. There will be over 100 invited lecturers and moderators who are leaders in the field as well as in their practice settings. The 2017 meeting in Las Vegas, Nevada drew over 600 registrants.
The wide range of radiologists in attendance includes specialists in neuroradiology, head & neck imaging, emergency radiology and pediatric radiology, as well as a substantial number of general radiologists. The 52nd Annual Meeting will include sessions devoted to advances in head and neck cancer imaging and improving CT and MRI imaging protocols, as well as a series of lectures designated as “core curriculum” that will cover more basic topics, including difficult head and neck anatomy. Four SAM sessions will help registrants meet the recertification requirements of the ABR, a proven registration “draw”. Scheduled refreshment breaks, as well as Wednesday evening’s Opening Reception, will be held in the technical exhibits room allowing multiple opportunities for registrants to engage with exhibitors.
Savannah is easily accessible by direct flights from numerous cities including New York, Chicago, Atlanta, Dallas/Fort Worth and Houston. Known as “The Jewel of the South”, the city is graced by 22 historic squares, landmark homes, numerous museums and exceptional dining. The Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort and Spa has a unique location on an island in the Savannah River 5 minutes by free ferry and 10 minutes by car from the downtown historic district. An 18-hole Sam Snead-designed golf course was home to the PGA TOUR’s Legends of Golf Champions Tour event from 2003-2013, and will be home to Friday afternoon’s 9-hole tournament, open to registrants and exhibitors. We hope you will join us at this outstanding medical societal event.
