The British Society of Head & Neck Imaging (BSHNI) supports the study and advancement of Head and Neck Imaging. This is achieved through the Annual Meeting of the Society, through fostering professional relationships amongst Radiologists and Clinicians and through the engagement with the public and other bodies involved in the provision of care to patients requiring imaging and treatment of conditions affecting the Head & Neck.
The BSHNI (sometimes in its role as a Royal College of Radiologists special interest group) may be asked to review or ratify guidelines and standards.
