The President's Corner
I have been a member and actively involved in the American Society of Pediatric Neuroradiology (ASPNR) for over 25 years culminating in the current presidency. The society continues to evolve and better serve its membership. My involvement in the society has been immensely rewarding and I enthusiastically support the societal pillars of supporting research, education, and promoting best clinical practices in pediatric neuroradiologic care. We are a welcoming, inclusive, and supportive society with a growing engaged membership. It is truly a wonderful time to be a Pediatric Neuroradiologist and a member of the ASPNR!!
On a more personal note, my interest in Pediatrics started in medical school with my rotation in pediatrics. When I started my radiology residency, my plan was always to be a Pediatric Radiologist. In fellowship, with the guidance and advice of my mentor Gilbert Vezina, I saw the light and being a Pediatric Neuroradiologist was my new goal. My interest in pediatric head and neck radiology started with my first real publication on oval window atresia. Twenty-five years later, I find myself in the enviable position of accomplishing so much more than I have ever dreamed of. The field of Pediatric Neuroradiology is ever changing and remains a challenge to myself and all who practice. The ASPNR has helped and challenged me to be a better Pediatric Neuroradiologist, which is what it is all about.
