Kuo York Chynn neuroradiology research award

The Kuo York Chynn Neuroradiology Research Award was created to honor the author of the top neuroradiology research paper presented during the RSNA annual meeting.

Dr. Chynn, the founder of this award and an internationally known neuroradiology expert, has written more than 30 papers and two textbooks, and holds a patent for his invention — the Painless Chynn Myelography Needle. He established this neuroradiology research award to give back to his field and help other researchers persevere and succeed as he did.

Funded with a donation by Dr. Chynn, this award gives US$3,000 to the author of the top neuroradiology research paper presented at the annual meeting.
