ASHNR President
It gives me great pleasure to welcome one and all to the annual meeting of the American Society of Head and Neck Radiology (ASHNR) to be held from September 7-11, 2022, at the Gaylord Rockies Resort & Convention Center in Aurora, Colorado. The ASHNR annual meeting is the premier national conference specifically focused on head and neck imaging. This meeting provides a comprehensive educational experience in head and neck imaging and includes nearly 100 speakers and moderators from various institutions across academic and private practice settings. The past two virtual meetings in 2021 and 2020 attracted between 1000-1300 registrants and the two in person meetings prior to that in 2019 and 2018 drew around 500-600 registrants. 
The sessions at the meeting are designed to attract specialists in Neuroradiology, both adult and pediatric, Head and Neck Radiology, Emergency Radiology and Pediatric Radiology. Apart from providing Continuing Medical Education credits, multiple sessions will also provide SAM credits that are important in meeting ABR Maintenance of Certification requirements. The annual meeting is regarded highly by one and all as the venue for both obtaining and refreshing one’s knowledge in head and neck imaging.
Standing at the edge of the Front Range, Gaylord Rockies Resort & Convention Center showcases the state’s alpine charm and offers guests a welcome reprieve from the typical mountain resort stay. There are numerous family-friendly activities ranging from the thrilling Arapahoe Springs Water Park to an exciting lineup of different activities and entertainment. Guests can explore the beautiful Grand Lodge and its stunning mountain views, five delicious restaurants, bars, the world-class Relâche Spa, and a state-of-the-art fitness center. The resort also features over 500,000 sq ft of flexible meeting space, 1,387 modern guest rooms, and 114 spectacular suites. Our corporate sponsor partners will have specifically designed areas to showcase their products, interact with attendees and engage in fruitful discussions.
We hope you are as excited as we are in preparing for the ASHNR 2022 annual meeting and invite you to join this outstanding medical societal event that will provide high quality education in a relaxed environment and multiple opportunities for social events and networking.
