Dear members of the Korean Society of Intraoperative Neurophysiological Monitoring,

Welcome and thank you for visiting the website of Korean Society of Intra-Operative Neurophysiological Monitoring (KSION)

Intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring is well-developed and sensitive technology in the field of neurology. Recently a tremendous achievement of ICT and neuroscience could change and expand the field of neurophysiological monitoring. The functional mapping and neurophysiological monitoring methods of nervous system became more easily applicable to the operation for brain and nerve as well as popular worldwide. Keeping up with those advances, Korean society of intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring (KSION), founded in 2016, have accomplished remarkable achievements and it is now considered as a leading academic society in Korea.

During the short period, we established hospital-based intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring system in Korea as a profession, introduced real-time on-line direct supervision according to the level of supervision, and improved implementation of technical practices, cooperating with allied professions. We has held its annual symposiums and provided educational and review courses every year. We has hosted international academic conferences (6th annual course and meeting of international society of intraoperative neurophysiology in 2017, AOSIN in 2019). In addition, we have been publishing a KSION’s official peer reviewed journal (Journal of intraoperative neurophysiology: JOIN) twice a year since 2019. It is a medium dedicated to basic, experimental, clinical studies and experiences relating to all fields of intraoperative neurophysiology. All these achievements have not been possible without dedicated support and passionate participation of KSION members.

KSION will continue to play a leading role in enlightening and disseminating the intraoperative neurophysiology in Korea by providing a forum of education and the skillful workshop. We will develop and enhance further our ability in basic and clinical research through JOIN, our official journal. Also we have to empower members to advance profession of intraoperative neurophysiology, building partnerships and coalitions with allied professions. For the further progress, we need to make more cooperation and strengthen more close exchange and cooperation. It is time to make close network with our peers worldwide, especially in Asian-Oceanian countries. We will try our best to serving as the leading organization for the field of intraoperative neurophysiological mapping and monitoring. Also KSION welcomes all comments and suggestions on Intraoperative Neurophysiology.
