ASPNR’s Gold Medal Award is awarded on the basis of both professional and personal excellence, honoring individuals who are superb pediatric neuroradiologists, scientists, and/or physicians, and mentors and who also are truly outstanding people. Recipients have consistently extended themselves beyond self-interest to make contributions to the field of pediatric neuroradiology and as such, have elevated our subspecialty. This medal recognizes the exceptional service and achievements of these individuals.
By way of background, from 2000-2004, the ASPNR presented a Special Recognition Award. In 2005, that award was replaced with the Gold Medal Award. Past recipients of the Special Recognition Award were presented with Gold Medals. The first Gold Medal Award was presented in 2006.
Here we list our Gold Medal Award recipients.
