A Message from the President

Fellow ASER Members:

The task of creating my first president’s message is a daunting one. This society has been and continues to be a big part of my life. I have made lifelong friends through my involvement; I have grown personally and professionally. So much has happened that it is time for a brief update.

Many of you are reading this message on our new website. Highlights include: an updated look, user-friendly drop-downs and easy member profile access. New members can now submit applications online, and existing members can pay dues easily via their member portal and view and print receipts. I thank IMM staff and society members who contributed to this effort. We would also appreciate website feedback and recommendations for further improvements.

We are less than six months away from our annual meeting to be held September 16-19, 2015, at the Ritz Carlton in Key Biscayne, Florida. Our last meeting at the Ritz Carlton was a great success. The setting and resort facilities are wonderful, the guest rooms are a fantastic bargain and the meeting rooms are spacious and only a few steps from the beach! The social activities provide an opportunity to meet with domestic and international colleagues to discuss new and challenging aspects of emergency and trauma imaging. I have been working closely with the chairman of the Annual Meeting Committee, Dr. Jorge Soto. The committee has put together a truly outstanding program. We have retained the format of the two-day trauma head-to-toe course. Over the years this course has become the world’s most comprehensive trauma imaging course. The Society will continue to offer the two-day course to trainees for token ($50) tuition. In an effort to engage more and newer members of the society, we have added several sessions with a format of multiple short presentations. We will also continue to offer CME courses. I look forward to seeing you in Key Biscayne.

Our members continue to work closely with the American Board of Radiology (ABR) to develop modules that accurately reflect emergency imaging practice for the Maintenance of Certification examination. Our members also collaborate with the American College of Radiology (ACR) to offer Emergency Imaging for the General Radiologist at the ACR Education Center. I encourage you to explore the resources of the new website including the Core Curriculum, the Emergency Radiology journal, and the official ASER textbook. These initiatives owe their success to the dedication and hard work of our members. I have participated in many of these initiatives and found them to be very rewarding. I encourage my fellow members to participate as well; you too can grow personally and professionally while helping to advance the practice of emergency radiology.

Thanks,

Wayne Kubal
