AOSR President

I am Professor Noriyuki Tomiyama from Osaka University, and I have been serving as the President of the Asian Oceanian Society of Radiology (AOSR) since 2023. I am pleased and honored to welcome everyone to the 22nd Asian Oceanian Congress of Radiology (AOCR 2024) in Taipei, which is being hosted by the Chinese Taipei Society of Radiology (CTSR). In the past, CTSR hosted the 13th AOCR in 2010 in Taipei and AOCR 2024 was the first time it had been held in 14 years.

On behalf of the AOSR, we would like to express our gratitude to the CTSR for hosting AOCR 2024, and we are excited for another successful event and exceptional experience. I would like to congratulate Professor Hong-Jen Chiou, the President of AOCR 2024 and President of the Chinese Taipei Society of Radiology. I would also like to thank Professor Shu-Huei Shen, the Secretary General, and all the staff members who are contributing to this wonderful congress.

The theme for AOCR 2024 is "The Precision of Radiology." This theme is concise and accurately represents the direction that radiologists should be heading. Over the years, diagnostic modalities such as CT and MR have made significant advancements, and new scanning techniques have improved. These advancements have enabled us to achieve "The Precision of Radiology," which allows radiologists to make valuable contributions to human healthcare.

Taipei is the economic, educational, and cultural center of Taiwan. It is also considered one of the world's major global cities. Needless to say, Taipei is renowned for its gastronomy and I am sure we would all enjoy staying there.

See you at the AOCR 2024 in Taipei.
