Abstract

According to reports presented at the Asian Radiology Forum 2017 in Taipei, the landscape of screening in Asia is growing, and the role of radiologists is also evolving. The Asian Radiology Forum was first held by the Korean Society of Radiology and the national delegates of Asian radiological partner societies, who attended this meeting with the aim of discussing selected subjects of global relevance in radiology. In 2017, current trends and policies concerning various cancer screening programs from each delegate country were discussed. Various screening programs were discussed, including liver screening in Thailand, thyroid cancer screening in Korea, and lung cancer screening data from the ongoing projects in Taiwan and Japan. The Asian Oceanian Society of Radiology could serve as a platform for international collaboration, and educational exchange between member societies was also highlighted in the forum. Most Asian radiology societies are looking forward to an expansion in the scale of international collaboration and for the provision of additional exchange programs in the future.
