Our past year has been an eventful one indeed. Under the vision and out-of-box ideas of Dr Khandelwal, the President of the SER, and Dr Ron Zagoria, the Editor-in-Chief, of Em Rad, we have partnered with the ASER and adopted the Emergency Radiology as our official journal. Newer techniques and methodologies in the field can be shared with a much wider readership, and the lag phase between the more experienced and the relative newbies can be obliterated by a simultaneous revelation and sharing of know-how across the globe.
