Farewell message from outgoing President, David Wolinsky, MD, MASNC
As we say goodbye to 2015 I am proud to say that ASNC has had an extraordinarily successful year. We have advanced the major pillars that have been the foundation of ASNC - quality, education and advocacy. New guidelines have been developed on Stressors and Tracers. Existing guidelines have reached a far broader audience with translation into Spanish. The ASNC ImageGuide Registry™, is up and running and is expected to generate its first set of quality improvement data early in 2016. Our educational portfolio continues to expand with an expansive array of on-line educational opportunities. Our Board Review Course continues to grow in popularity and our Annual Meeting has seen increased attendance and stellar reviews.
