From the President and Program Chair
Join us October 9-11, 2017 for the American Society of Functional Neuroradiology (ASFNR) 11th Annual Meeting in Portland, Oregon at the iconic The Nines Hotel. An optional Hands-on BOLD fMRI Worskhop will be held on October 8.

The ASFNR Annual Meeting features an in-depth and comprehensive update on functional neuroimaging and advanced neuroimaging which will appeal to a broad range of neuroradiologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, physicists, neuropsychiatrists and psychologists, cognitive neuroscientists, biomedical engineers, clinical and research fellows, residents, doctoral and postdoctoral students, and radiology technologists.

This 2½ day meeting will feature a series of focused sessions with didactic lectures and panel discussions by nationally and internationally recognized experts as well as original research papers and posters.

The ASFNR 11th Annual Meeting will feature a roster of nationally recognized scientific keynote speakers. Major topics and objectives include:

  • Artificial intelligence and machine learning in personalized medicine, image quality, and its application to diagnostic image interpretation.
  • Advances in diffusion MR imaging including microstructural and microdyamic MR and updates on BOLD fMRI and resting state MRI.
  • Neuropscyhiatric MR imaging including addiction, connectivity, neurogenetics, and TMS.
  • New insights into neurodegeneration, including the glymphatic system, cerebrovascular reactivity, iron and microglia, PET MR, and machine learning.
  • A special session on glioma, including genomics, new WHO classification, white matter migration analysis, intravoxel incoherent motion MR, hyperpolarization of 13C, machine learning, and clinical trials.
  • Pediatric neuroimaging centered on connectivity from the neonatal period through adolescence.
  • Emerging technology from rapid MR acquisitions, metabolic imaging and bioscales, and myelin mapping to advanced neuroimaging of the spine.

On Sunday, October 8,2017, there will be the ASFNR Hands-On Workshop for BOLD fMRI Image Processing for presurgical planning. Attendance for the workshop is limited to the first 20 registrants and this very popular workshop is typically sold out very early on.

Portland, Oregon is quickly becoming a destination city with its unique cultural and artsy-hipster vibe that is gently ridiculed on the TV program, Portlandia. It is a foodie’s paradise and recently named best food city in America. It is a laid-back city with award-winning microbrews and acclaimed Pinot Noirs from the world-renowned Willamette Valley of Oregon. The city has a legendary bookstore, Powell’s, and, if we are lucky, a view of Mt Hood. Breakfast and brunch places have cult-like followings as does VooDoo donuts. The Nines Hotel, located in the heart of downtown, is a 5-star hotel within 20 minutes of the airport, which is serviced by a train that drops off right in front of the hotel.

I sincerely hope you will join us for this outstanding event.

Christopher G. Filippi, M.D.
President and Program Chair


Target Audience
This CME activity is intended to educate anyone interested in functional neuroimaging including neuroradiologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuropsychiatrists, cognitive neuroscientist and psychologists, brain mapping scientists, physicists, residents, fellows, doctoral and postdoctoral students, engineers, and radiology technologists.
Educational Objectives
Attendees should, at the completion of this meeting, be able to:
  • Describe the physical principles that inform BOLD and resting state fMRI, diffusion-weighted and diffusion tensor imaging, arterial spin labeling, MR perfusion imaging, susceptibility weighted imaging and MEG.
  • Explain current, routine clinical applications and limitations of advanced neuroimaging and functional MR techniques in terms of diagnosis and precision health.
  • Discuss effective ways to translate advanced neuroimaging and functional imaging into routine clinical practice while acknowledging potential barriers and limitations.
No special educational preparation is required for this CME activity.
Registration Information
Payment of the registration fee includes all course materials, including a color e-syllabus (printed color syllabus is available for $95), welcome reception, daily continental breakfasts, and refreshment breaks.

Cancellations must be received in writing. A $75 processing fee will be applied to all cancellations. Refunds requested in writing prior to September 29, 2017 will be issued for the amount of registration paid, less the $75 processing fee. No refunds will be made on or after that date.

Optional BOLD Functional MRI Hands-on Workshop - October 8, 2017

About this Workshop
This workshop will provide a practical step-by-step post-processing of BOLD fMRI studies with SPM8 software and data presentation.

Target Audience
This CME activity is intended to educate neuroradiologists, neuroradiology fellows, physicists, clinical psychologists and MR technologists. The workshop is intended for those with beginner to intermediate level fMRI experience.


Educational Objectives
Attendees should, at the completion of this workshop, be able to perform the following: 
  • Preprocessing of BOLD fMRI Data
    • Realignment/Coregistration
    • Spatial Normalization
    • Smoothing
  • Single Subject Analysis
    • Model Specification
    • Model Estimation
    • Visualization of the BOLD data
No special educational preparation is required for this CME activity.

Accreditation
Physicians: This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of Educational Symposia and the American Society of Functional Neuroradiology. Educational Symposia is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
 
Educational Symposia designates this live activity for a maximum of 7.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)TM.
Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. 
 
Technologists: This program has been submitted to the ASRT. The number of A CE credits will be available approximately 30 days prior to the meeting. Please visit www.edusymp.com or call 1-800-338-5901 regarding the availability of Category A CE Credit.

Hardware/Software Requirements

Registrants are required to bring to the workshop their own laptop with a minimum 2G of RAM and 10G of hard disk space. The machines should have preloaded SPM8 and MATLAB software prior to the workshop. DICOM BOLD fMRI practice data sets will be available at the workshop.  All registrants will be given instructions on downloading SPM8 and the 15-day free MATLAB license prior to the workshop.
