Singapore will once again play host to RadiologyAsia, an annual radiology conference and tradeshow that brings together the medical imaging, informatics, and clinical practice communities in Asia.

To be held from 11 to 13 May at MAX Atria @ Singapore Expo, the event is expected to attract over 1,000 regional delegates from Southeast Asia and Australia and New Zealand, featuring more than 100 renowned faculties focusing on key areas such as abdominal, breast and chest radiology, ultrasound, and healthcare IT.

Organizers said the accompanying exhibition will feature over 60 exhibitors, showcasing a wide array of products and solutions, key to growing end-users capabilities, and improving effectiveness and efficiency.

RadiologyAsia is jointly organized by the Singapore Radiological Society and SingEx, said

Organising Chair, Adj. Asst. Prof. Steven Wong Bak Siew, said this year’s RadiologyAsia in Singapore carries the theme “Going Beyond the ABCs of Radiology”.

“In 2018, we will go beyond the focus of ABCs of Radiology, with Abdominal, Breast and Chest Radiology being the main tracks. Leading experts will share their knowledge and expertise in these fields,” he said.

He added that for the first time, Imaging Informatics will feature in its own session, with support from our friends at HIMSS Asia Pacific and SIIM USA.

“For those involved in Radiology IT and RISPACS, it will be an ideal opportunity to hear the latest thoughts behind ‘Enterprise Imaging and Radiology’ and to hear about the challenge or promise that Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning will bring to Radiology,” Siew said.
