InterContinental Seoul CoexSEOUL, SOUTH KOREA Visit the Venue to read more
On behalf of the organizing committee of the 71st Korean Congress of Radiology (KCR 2015), it is my great honor and pleasure to invite you to the KCR 2015 to be held from September 9 (Wed) to 12 (Sat), 2015 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 all over the world through KCR 2015. KSR opened its congress to the international audience in 2007, and since then, the number of sessions conducted in English has increased to almost 80% of the program. This year, while maintaining this ratio, KCR 2015 will continuously run sessions in Korean throughout the congress period to propose a more balanced program for those who are interested in attending sessions conducted in Korean. This shows the dedication of KSR to share its expertise both within Korea as well as the rest of the world and grow together for the future of radiology.
In particular, with the new slogan, K-RAD, which means Korean radiology, KSR has identified three keywords that express the values that it would like to focus on during the next three years for the advancement of the Society as well as the field of radiology in general: open, balanced and sustainable. “Open” stands for an open-minded approach toward communication and collaboration both in and outside radiology to promote innovation; “balanced” stands for the strive to close the gap between the subspecialties in radiology as well as the different regions and the urban and rural areas; lastly and most importantly, “sustainable” stands for the need to prepare for change in today’s unfavorable environment at the level of the Society, scientific research and the field of radiology in general.
To achieve these goals, the organizing committee is 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. To serve this purpose, KCR 2015 is planning to invite 27 world renowned scholars from 12 countries along with distinguished radiology experts from Korea. Among them, Dr. N. Reed Dunnick, Professor of University of Michigan Health System and Immediate Past President of RSNA, will give the Congress Lecture at the Opening Session.
In addition to serving as a significant platform for exchanging valuable ideas, KCR 2015 will offer its participants a chance to socialize and interact with colleagues and friends from all parts of the world.
I believe that the congress will bring innovation and further advancement in the scientific level and quality in the study of radiology. In this regard, I extend my heartfelt invitation to you to join us at KCR 2015 in Seoul during the beautiful season of September. I am looking forward to seeing you at the congress.
