KCR 2018


Dear colleagues,

On behalf of the Organizing Committee of the 74th Korean Congress of Radiology (KCR 2018), it is my great honor and pleasure to invite you to KCR 2018 to be held from September 12 (Wed) to 15 (Sat), 2018 in Seoul, Korea.

It is the wish of the Korean Society of Radiology (KSR), the organizing society of KCR, to have the privilege to share its experience and knowhow with colleagues from all over the world through KCR 2018. KSR opened its congress to the international audience in 2007, and since then, the number of sessions conducted in English has increased. This shows the dedication of KSR to share its expertise with the rest of the world and grow together for the future of radiology. In particular, the 2018 edition of KCR will see its duration extended to 3.5 days to propose more sessions and share even more knowledge and information in the field of radiology.

With the start of my presidency, KSR coined a new slogan, “Value-based Radiology for Patients.” In medicine, value-based healthcare focuses on the value created for patients, and strives to prolong and improve the quality of their lives. This impacts the way doctors treat their patients. As radiologists, we must play an active and central role in promoting value-based healthcare by managing all our medical practices with the health and quality of the lives of our patients in mind.

In light of the above, the KCR 2018 Organizing Committee has chosen “Innovation of Imaging: Value-based Radiology for Patients” as the theme of this year’s congress. We are designing the best possible program with high quality scientific sessions that will provide a great opportunity for all participants to keep up-to-date with the latest research findings. KCR 2018 is planning to invite 40 world-renowned scholars from 10 countries along with distinguished radiology experts from Korea. Among them, Dr. Paul Chang (The University of Chicago) will speak at the Congress Lecture, and Drs. Myeong-Jin Kim (Yonsei University College of Medicine) and David A. Bluemke (University of Wisconsin-Madison) will deliver Plenary Lectures.

Last but not least, in addition to providing a significant platform for exchanging valuable ideas, KCR 2018 will offer its participants a chance to socialize and interact with colleagues and friends from all parts of the world.

I believe that KCR 2018 will bring innovation and further advancement in the scientific level and quality of the study of radiology. In this regard, I extend my heartfelt invitation to you to join us at KCR 2018 in Seoul during the beautiful season of September. I am looking forward to seeing you at the congress.

Sincerely yours,

Joo Hyeong Oh, MD, PhD
President, Organizing Committee
74th Korean Congress of Radiology
