Please plan to attend the American Society of Functional Neuroradiology (ASFNR) 12th Annual Meeting to be held October 15-17, 2018 at the Hotel Del Coronado in San Diego, California.  An optional "hands-on" BOLD fMRI workshop will be conducted on October 14th.

The ASFNR Annual Meeting will provide attendees with an unparalleled opportunity to receive instruction in the rapidly evolving field of functional neuroimaging and related disciplines.  The program will appeal to a multidisciplinary group of professionals interested in neuroimaging including: neuroradiologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, medical physicists, biomedical engineers, neuropsychologists, cognitive neuroscientists, clinical and research fellows, residents, doctoral and postdoctoral students, and radiology technologists.

During the 2 ½ day meeting, educational opportunities will include lectures, panel discussions, oral research paper presentations, posters, and small group study sessions.  Instruction will be provided by an outstanding group of internationally recognized experts in the field.

I'm pleased to announce that this year’s honorary lecturer will be Kamil Ugurbil, PhD from the Center for Magnetic Resonance Research at the University of Minnesota.   Dr. Ugurbil, known for his groundbreaking work in BOLD fMRI and ultrahigh field MR imaging, will be sharing insights and perspectives gained through his integral involvement with the Human Connectome Project and the NIH BRAIN initiative.  

Additional highlights of this year’s program include:
  • Updates on clinical BOLD fMRI for pre-surgical mapping including advanced anatomic considerations, multiband data acquisition, cerebral vascular reactivity imaging, and ultrahigh field fMRI.
  • Advances in diffusion imaging including clinical application of diffusion tensor imaging and other diffusion based microstructural imaging techniques.
  • New perspectives on cerebral perfusion imaging, radiogenomics, and other advanced methods of brain tumor analysis.
  • An exploration of neuropsychiatric imaging.
  • Best recommendations for pediatric functional neuroimaging methods.
  • A look into the quickly evolving role of artificial intelligence in advanced neuroimaging.

This year, the popular pre-meeting ASFNR “Hands-On” BOLD fMRI data processing workshop, chaired by Dr. Scott Faro and Dr. Feroze Mohammed, will be expanded to include processing of resting state functional connectivity data. Enrollment is limited and demand is always high, so be sure to register early for this unique training opportunity.

The setting for this year’s meeting is the beautiful Hotel Del Coronado, an iconic beach resort across the bay from the city of San Diego. A short 20-minute drive or taxi ride from the San Diego International Airport, the facility offers a tranquil seaside setting with several dining opportunities and a beautiful beach. San Diego itself is one of the premiere tourist destinations in the United States and is famous for its wonderful weather throughout the year. The city provides a virtually endless palate of activities to satisfy all tastes. Whether your preferred leisure is outdoor adventure, athletics, fine dining, shopping, family theme parks, or simply enjoying a relaxing sunset stroll down the beach, San Diego has it all.

I look forward to seeing you at the Hotel Del Coronado in October.

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:
  • Understand the physics, clinical application, and limitations of the following imaging techniques: active task and resting state BOLD fMRI, diffusion-weighted imaging, diffusion tensor imaging, dynamic susceptibility contrast perfusion imaging, arterial spin labeling, and ultrahigh field MRI.
  • Apply advanced diagnostic functional imaging techniques in a variety of disease processes including epilepsy, brain tumors, cerebrovascular disease, traumatic brain injury, neuropsychiatric disease, and chronic neurodegeneration.
  • Describe the current and future impact of artificial intelligence on the practice of neuroradiology.
  • Use advanced functional imaging techniques for the benefit of pediatric patients.
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 October 4, 2018 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 14, 2018

About this Workshop
This workshop will provide a practical step-by-step post-processing of BOLD fMRI studies with SPM12 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 fMRI data
  • Resting State fMRI
    • Preprocessing of Resting state data
    • Post processing strategies
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 7.25 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 http://asfnr.edusymp.com or call (813)806-1000 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 SPM12 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 SPM12 and the 15-day free MATLAB license prior to the workshop.
