Committee members that include a section chairperson, membership chair, program chair, and nominating
chair. The Section meets each year at the AAP National Conference & ExhibItion (NCE). At each NCE, mem-
bers of the Section present a diverse array of programs in imaging. These include workshops on imaging
and interpretation (both beginning level and advanced) and a special program for Section members. The
Section serves as an expert resource to the Academy by providing review and input to official Academy policy.
