History of The Eastern Neuroradiological Society

3.     How/Why did it all begin?

The ENRS was established in response to the success that the Southeastern Neuroradiological Society and the Western Neuroradiological Society were experiencing at the time.  The Founders felt that a society serving Neuroradiologists in the Northeast would produce similar success.

  • To promote a close fellowship and to facilitate the communication and exchange of ideas and information among neuroradiologists and head and neck radiologists,
  • To promote close cooperation between neuroradiology and head and neck radiology and other branches of medicine and the allied sciences,
  • To develop and support high standards for training in neuroradiology and head and neck radiology.
  • To develop and support high professional and ethical standards for the technique and practice of neuroradiology and head and neck radiology
  • To foster the study of neuroradiology and head and neck radiology and encourage the personal and professional development of younger neuroradiologists and head and neck radiologists,
  • To encourage, enhance, and support opportunities for practice and research in neuroradiology and head and neck radiology, and
