About AAFITN and Council

The Asian-Australasian Federation of Interventional and Therapeutic Neuroradiology (AAFITN) was founded in 1994 to promote the practice and knowledge of interventional and therapeutic neuroradiology in the Asian-Australasian region via the organization’s regional meetings. Our society holds scientific conferences every two years, with the world federation meetings happening in between. A main element of the field is neuroendovascular therapy, which is currently experiencing rapid progress with the development of techniques and devices. Our membership has also grown over the years, with a current headcount of over 400. The society’s Executive Committee is working towards making the society membership process more convenient as well as beneficial to its existing and potential members. The work that is given attention to includes improving the society’s official home page, establishing the society constitution, development of educational programs and maintaining stable working funds.
