2013 Jack O. Greenberg Neuroimaging Fellowship Award

Sponsored by the American Society of Neuroimaging Education Foundation (ASNEF)

The Award
The Jack O. Greenberg Neuroimaging Fellowship Award is named after one of the founders and third president of the American Society of Neuroimaging. In 1974, Dr. Greenberg brought the first Computed Tomography Scan into the State of Pennsylvania and later began imaging the central nervous system with magnetic resonance imaging.  He is the author of many articles in imaging and edited a bestselling textbook entitled “Neuroimaging, a Companion to Adams and Victor’s Principles of Neurology”. He has spent the last 30 years teaching neurologists how to interpret MR and CT scans based on sound clinical neurologic principals. His first mentor in Neurology was the late William Oldendorf, first President and one of the founders of the ASN.

The purpose of the award is to encourage training in MRI neuroimaging. The award will be made payable to the institution hosting the fellowship and will be distributed in quarterly payments

The Education Foundation Board selects the recipient of the award.  A $25,000 grant will be awarded.
