Thank you for your interest in the American Society of Head and Neck Radiology. We are pleased to provide the following information for your review.

History and Purpose: 
The American Society of Head and Neck Radiology (ASHNR) was founded in Chicago, Illinois on November 12, 1976 by Doctors Galdino E. Valvassori of Chicago, William N. Hanafee of Los Angeles, Guy D. Potter of New York, and Daniel H. Johnson, Jr. of New Orleans. The Society was incorporated under the laws of Louisiana on March 18, 1977, and sponsored the first postgraduate course on Radiology in Otolaryngology and Ophthalmology in Los Angeles in May, 1977, assuming sponsorship of the annual course on the same subject held under the auspices of Doctor Valvassori for ten years in Chicago.

ASHNR was founded to stimulate interest and advance knowledge in the field of Head and Neck Radiology; to foster continuing development of head and neck radiology as an art and a science; to improve methods of teaching radiological diagnosis of disease of the head and neck; to provide meetings for presentation and discussion of papers; and to promote the dissemination of knowledge in head and neck radiology.

Sincerely,
ASHNR Membership Committee
