President's Message - September 2015

I am humbled at the honor and privilege to serve as president of the ASER. A heartfelt thank you to the membership, the visionary society founders, and to those in leadership who have supported me over the years and have placed their trust in me.

The American Society of Emergency Radiology has grown so much since its inception in 1988 and now serves at the forefront of our field. Our mission of imaging the critically ill and injured in a timely, efficient, and safe manner is arguably the pinnacle of our specialty.

Before I started call as a first-year resident, I recall the fear in feeling that I would be responsible for making the right diagnosis, or worse, missing the critical finding with life- or limb-threatening consequences. I discovered an emergency radiology course that was hosted in a nearby city and attended. And wow, was I glad I did! It was there that I first met my friend and mentor, Dr. Stu Mirvis, and was in awe at the remarkable pathology, as well, of course, at his purely dynamic delivery of the material. I was hooked. I gained permission from my program chair (thank you, Dr. Dawson!) to arrange a two-week elective with him and the wildly entertaining crew at Shock Trauma, and the rest, as they say, is history. Thank you Stu, Shan, Clint, and Lisa!

I could not be more proud to represent this wonderful society and its wonderful people as president and am sincerely grateful for the opportunity. With your support and dedication, I look forward to working with our terrific Executive Committee and managerial staff serving our membership and advancing the calling of the ASER, including state-of-the-art educational and scientific resources and missions to advance our identity, presence, and leadership in the field of radiology, and the medical community as a whole. 

Together we can make this happen. I encourage your participation and welcome you into the family. Hope to see you in San Francisco next September!
