2014 - 2016:
Dr Christopher

The 2016 BSNR Annual Scientific Meeting will take place on 7th and 8th October in the historic city of York, hosted and organised by Tony Goddard and his colleagues in Leeds. An excellent meeting is in prospect with an array of fine speakers from various disciplines. The program includes sessions on Neuro-oncology, Interventional Neuroradiology and Paediatric Neuroradiology. The James Bull lecture will be delivered by Professor Martin Bland, Emeritus Professor of Health Statistics, University of York. The meeting will also feature the first Brian Kendall Lecture which will be given by Professor David Fiorella from New York. Friday evenings event will take place at the Merchant Adventurers Hal with live music accompanying dinner. Formal proceedings will close on Saturday afternoon with the Societys AGM, followed by the Conference Dinner at the renowned National Railway Museum.

Full details are available on the conference website:

Following on from the success of the inaugural 1-day Neuroradiology Teaching Course for Trainees in Sheffield last year, Ian Craven is organising a repeat event to be held on Thursday 6th October, the day before the ASM. There will be 36 places on the course. Last years course was considerably oversubscribed so early application is advised. Attendees are strongly encouraged and very welcome to stay on for the Annual Scientific Meeting. A link for registration will be provided through the BSNR conference website. It has been a busy year for the BSNR Committee and Subcommittees, not least the ongoing work on standards for training and practice in mechanical thrombectomy and hyperacute stroke imaging, ably led by Rob Lenthall and Gerardine Quaghebeur. Rob Dineen and Adam Waldman have been touring the country as joint du Boulay professors.

I am delighted that Andy Clifton, Consultant Neuroradiologist at St Georges Hospital London will be succeeding me as President of the Society after the next AGM in October, to serve from 2016-2018. Andy has a wealth of experience in diagnostic and interventional practice, many years of service as a Clinical Director and has been involved in a number of interventional clinical trials. He is ideally qualified to meet the many challenges facing UK Neuroradiology in the coming months.

I look forward to seeing you in York in October.
