On behalf of the Eastern Neuroradiological Society, I would like to extend a warm personal invitation to join us for the 29th Annual ENRS Meeting that is taking place on August 24-27 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
 
This year’s meeting will cover all of the various aspects of neuroimaging. Core sessions include comprehensive but also practical and relevant sessions on brain, advanced imaging techniques, stroke, pediatric, ENT and neurointerventional imaging. A new Emergency Neuroimaging session is also included in this year’s program. A total of four Self Assessment Module (SAM) sessions are interspersed throughout the meeting. There will be three scientific presentation sessions this year that will culminate with the presentation of the Norman E. Leeds and Stephen A. Kieffer awards. The always popular Stump the Stars session will also be held prior to the annual gala dinner. As in years past, the Program Committee has brought together a diverse group of moderators and speakers for the meeting. While there are numerous international and nationally recognized speakers on the program, this year, the Committee has endeavored to include many new junior faculty and first time speakers to be a part of the proceedings.
 
The meeting will be held in downtown Toronto at the Marriott Eaton Centre Hotel. Toronto is located on the shores of Lake Ontario and is the largest city in Canada and the fifth largest in North America. It is a cosmopolitan, ethnically and culturally diverse city that is a major centre for international business and finance. The weather during August will be excellent and the city offers numerous activities and that would be of interest for the whole family. There are several cultural attractions such as the Royal Ontario Museum, the Art Gallery of Ontario and the Hockey Hall of Fame. A number of theatre and live performance venues are all situated downtown including Roy Thomson Hall, Massey Hall, the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts, the Elgin and Winter Garden and the Princess of Wales Theatres. The Canadian National Exhibition will also be in full swing during the meeting and the Toronto Blue Jays baseball team will also be in town for a weekend series. The city is also home to world class shopping with the conference hotel situated literally steps away from the Eaton Centre shopping mall that is home to over 250 stores. Numerous culturally diverse restaurants are also located downtown and are within walking distance of the hotel.
 
In the tradition of past years, we are looking forward to starting the 29th Annual Meeting with a Welcome Reception on Thursday evening followed by the Annual Gala Dinner on Saturday. This meeting has by tradition been a family oriented and casual event that offers the opportunity to meet and network with colleagues new and old. This year’s meeting will aim to continue and build upon that tradition.
 
In closing, I would like to sincerely thank and acknowledge the hard work and support of the ENRS Executive Committee, the amazingly organized Program Committee and the dedicated and hardworking managers and staff from Educational Symposia. This meeting would not have been possible without all of their efforts and support.

Target Audience
The ENRS 29th Annual Meeting is targeted to academic and private practice neuroradiologists in the Northeastern United States and Canada who have an interest and background in the diseases of the central and peripheral nervous system, brain, spine, otolaryngology, and neurointervention in both adults and children, and the meeting is equally targeted to physicians-in-training including residents and fellows who are pursuing radiology.

Educational Objectives
At the conclusion of the meeting, the participant should be able to:
  • Understand the clinical and imaging features of common CNS infections.
  • Identify the radiologic anatomy of the skull base, temporal bone and pituitary fossa.
  • Review the principles and applications of advanced imaging techniques: perfusion, fMRI, diffusion tractography and MR spectroscopy in the evaluation of CNS disease.
  • Evaluate emergent conditions of the brain, spine and extracranial head and neck.
  • Describe the common neoplasms that affect the brain and their mimics.
  • Understand the anatomy of the paranasal sinuses and the principles behind functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS).
  • Learn the basics of vessel wall imaging and how to apply its use in routine clinical practice.
  • Learn how to optimize perfusion imaging studies in adult stroke.
  • Recognize the nuances and imaging pearls in the evaluation of CTA in adult stroke and intracranial hemorrhage.
  • Discuss the imaging features of traumatic, inflammatory and neoplastic diseases of the temporal bone.
  • Appreciate the indications for advanced imaging techniques in the extracranial head and neck.
  • Learn imaging pearls and nuances in the evaluation of CNS neoplasms.
  • Review the state of the art imaging tools that can be used for neurointerventional procedures.
  • Learn key upstaging features in head and neck cancer.
No special educational preparation is required for this CME activity.
