ASHNR President
Dear Friends,
We are looking forward to welcoming you to ASHNR 24 in the sunny city of San Diego in Southern California, September 4-8. This year’s meeting is shaping up to be the première head and neck education and research forum for radiologists in academic and private practice. This is a fantastic opportunity for learners of all levels to brush up on their knowledge and dive deep into HN, and engage with expert HN radiologists from around the world. The ASHNR has always been the best educational society and this meeting, and the outstanding speakers will increase your confidence in HN scan interpretation and your interactions with your referring clinicians.
To lead off day 1, we’ve incorporated the traditional ‘pre-meeting’ ASHNR Early Bird Session, with the help of Mohit Agarwal and The Cortex Club, for a trainee-presenters-only Excerpta Extraordinaire session. Then I will introduce you to our fearless ASHNR Boot Camp Leaders (Paul Bunch, Hillary Kelly, Cynthia Wu, Bill O’Brien, Niky Farid & Marin Macdonald) who are going to steer 5 sessions over day 1 and 2. This Boot Camp will refresh your memory and help you to really understand the ground ‘rules’ for interpreting H&N scans. There will be lectures covering anatomy, pathology, and critical points of image interpretation of the HN spaces, lymph nodes, skull base, temporal bones & paranasal sinuses. Each session has dedicated Rapid Fire Case Presentations to test and solidify your knowledge. Our Case of the Day posters led by Amy Juliano also start on Day 1, with the answers and prizes presented the following mornings.
On day 2 we will celebrate our terrific society collaboration with the ESHNR with the first of three combined sessions, where ASHNR experts and the European experts in HN imaging share the podium and share their knowledge on three critical topics of HN imaging. This year we introduce two Masterclass sessions with experts in gland imaging, neuroendocrine tumors, and the soon-to-be-released AJCC9 NPC chapter, presenting more in-depth lectures. The Valvassori lecture this year is a must-see, must-learn, Imaging of Otalgia presented by Jen Gillespie. Throughout the meeting, we will also have multiple Scientific sessions where the latest HN research is presented, and these sessions will include Keynote lectures on Radiomics, Photon Counting CT, and MR neurography by imaging experts. We have the afternoon on day 3 devoted to furthering your career development - TED-Talk style - sponsored by our Young Professionals committee, followed by a roundtable Happy Hour mentoring session.
Day 4 is solely dedicated to HN Cancer imaging with Comprehensive Cancer Classes teaching you the critical elements for tumor staging, imaging surveillance, best use of imaging modalities, and the integration of cutting-edge clinical tools. Our final day 5 Sunday morning sessions are all things orbit and the imaging of cranial neuropathies. No ASHNR meeting is complete without our Quiz Show hosts making learning fun. This year we have prior Gold Medalists of the ASHNR competing in an Expert Image Interpretation panel: The Mamas versus the Papas. Our ASHNR Gala on Saturday night will have you packing your dancing shoes, but don’t forget there are three other nights that our local San Diego program committee team has planned for you to enjoy!
Get ready to be inspired, to be challenged, and to leave the meeting with new ideas, new insights, and new enthusiasm to read head and neck scans. 
I look forward to welcoming you to San Diego and some California Dreamin’!

  • Non-radiologists, including otorhinolaryngologists, head and neck surgeons, medical and radiation oncologists, general surgeons, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and allied professionals in-training who are interested in HN imaging and HN cancer therapy and diagnosis.

Educational Objectives

Attendees should, at the completion of this meeting, be able to:
  • Demonstrate increased knowledge of the different head and neck spaces and their related pathology.
  • Identify normal anatomy and spectrum of benign and malignant pathology affecting cervical lymph nodes.
  • Become familiar with normal anatomy, developmental anomalies and different disease processes of the paranasal sinuses, nasal cavity, and skull base.
  • Identify temporal bone anatomy and develop a diagnostic approach to the spectrum of disease processes related to different types of hearing loss, tinnitus, and otalgia.
  • Review the essentials of HN cancer imaging, including staging and staging updates, state-of-the-art clinical tools for diagnosis and management, and post-treatment surveillance.
  • Demonstrate increased knowledge of advanced imaging techniques for the HN, and particularly for cancer imaging and early detection of recurrence.
  • Become familiar with applied anatomy and disease processes of the orbit and visual pathways.
  • Review anatomy and spectrum of pathology of the cranial nerves and sympathetic plexus through their most common clinical presentations.
  • Become more confident with defining your career pathway, whether it be in private practice or academics.
  • Meet, get to know and learn from expert HN radiologists and novices who want to share their interest in HN imaging and improving patient care.
