Dear AMSIG and RANZCR members,

I have had the utmost pleasure and honour of serving as AMSIG Vice President and President over the last four years and it is with great pride that I have had the opportunity to lead this wonderful society. During this time, I have been fortunate to work with a dynamic executive that have all contributed to taking AMSIG to a new level that we can all be proud of.

We recently held our annual scientific meeting in Sydney, with thanks to Drs Ron Shnier and Phil Lucas, with record number of delegates (223) and a record number of AMSIG members (170). The meeting was an enormous success and I have great pleasure in announcing that all talks are available online on our website, once logged in as a member. The abstracts/proceedings of the meeting will be available for all members to review in our official journal, Skeletal Radiology.

I invite you all to Melbourne next year on May 6 & 7, where myself and Dr Tim Dickson welcome you as convenors for the 2017 AMSIG Annual Scientific Meeting, whose theme will be on imaging of the “Foot and Ankle” – a relevant theme I am sure you all agree.

I would like to wish Dr Sanjay Dhupelia the best in his role as the new President, whom I enormously thank for his support as Vice President over the last two years.

best wishes,

Dr George Koulouris
