DETERMINING THE CLINICAL IMPACT OF ABDOMINAL IMAGING
The 9th Asian Congress of Abdominal Radiology (ACAR), which will be held in a hybrid event format in Taipei, Taiwan, from 20 to 21 May 2022
Dear colleagues and friends,
It is a great honor and pleasure for me to invite you to the 9th Asian Congress of Abdominal Radiology (ACAR), which will be held in a hybrid event format in Taipei, Taiwan, from 20 to 21 May 2022. During this congress, interdisciplinary outstanding invited speakers from around the globe will share their expertise on recent advancements in the subspecialty field of abdominal radiology. Our intention, as a ‘rotating’ organizer of a series of nine ACAR meetings, is to focus on the clinical impact of abdominal imaging on treatment planning and patient prognosis. We must ask ourselves from time to time –“Is this examination beneficial to the patient? Is this imaging report beneficial to the patient’s care? Does this imaging improve the patient’s treatment plan?” Therefore, the theme of the 2022 ACAR will be – Determining the Clinical Impact of Abdominal Imaging.
This will be a unique opportunity to meet colleagues and friends from different parts of the Asian region and to make new friends too. We look forward to hearty collaboration and discussion of various hot topics in this interdisciplinary abdominal imaging conference. Please join us for this event, and submit your research to the scientific session or the poster exhibition. We also welcome case series/reports.
I also hope you will have the chance to enjoy the beauty of Taipei, as well as its culture, cuisine, and hospitality. I am looking forward to welcoming all of you to Taipei in May 2022.
Be well and stay safe!
