A Message from the President
Hi SAR members, colleagues and anyone else who wandered to our site,
It’s hard to believe my year as president is winding down…but it is! I will preside over our meeting next week then pass the torch to Judy Yee, MD. Our meeting in Coronado, California is promising to be terrific. Right now we have over 700 attendees registered—and we always get a few more at the meeting itself. With 189 workshops, special sessions on Dual Energy CT, Prostate MR, Imaging of the Small Bowel and (back by popular demand) Virtual Colonoscopy not to mention all of the plenary sessions and paper presentations…who can argue that a great deal of education is not packed into the week? But wait there’s more: our Business meeting and lunch and In Camera Session on Sunday, the inaugural meeting of the newly formed APDAR (Association of Program Directors in Abdominal Radiology) and Welcome Reception on Monday, and the Awards Ceremony and Reception on Wednesday. We also have several special lectures from Drs. Richard L. Ehman, Peter R. Carroll, Hiromu Mori, Harriet C. Thoeny, and Andrea Laghi. New at this year’s meeting is the awarding of the best paper of the year from Abdominal Imaging (AI), our society’s journal as well as a committee to assess the educational exhibits for possible submission to AI in review article form.
