KCR 2020 September 16 (Wed) ~ 19 (Sat), 2020
Coex, Seoul, Korea


Dear colleagues,

On behalf of the Organizing Committee of the 76th Korean Congress of Radiology (KCR 2020), it is my great honor and pleasure to invite you to KCR 2020 to be held from September 16 (Wed) to 19 (Sat), 2020 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 2020. KSR opened its congress to the international audience in 2007, and since then, the number of sessions conducted in English has continued to rise, representing over 85% of all presentations today. This testifies to the dedication of KSR to share its expertise and grow together with the rest of the world for the future 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, striving to prolong and improve the quality of their lives. This outlook 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 2020 Organizing Committee has chosen “Design the Future: 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 all participants with the opportunity to keep up-to-date with the latest research findings. KCR 2020 is planning to invite 40 world-renowned scholars from 10 countries along with distinguished radiology experts from Korea. Among them, Dr. Debra Monticciolo (Texas A&M University) will speak at the Congress Lecture, and Drs. Massimo Filippi (Vita-Salute San Raffaele University), Ki-Nam Lee (Dong-A University), and Young Soo Do (Samsung Medical Center) will deliver Plenary Lectures.

Last but not least, in addition to providing a significant platform for exchanging valuable ideas, KCR 2020 will offer its participants a chance to socialize and interact with colleagues and friends from all parts of the world.

I believe that KCR 2020 will bring innovation and further advancement to 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 2020 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
76th Korean Congress of Radiology
