Dr. J. JalalShokouhi
Secretary of Iranian Society of Radiology

ICR in a Quarter Century

Except 2001, annual Iranian congress of radiology has been held every year. Because of September eleven, there was no congress in year 2001. Instead there were two congresses in 2007 to compensate the missed one.
According to new regulations of Iranian medical council, professional societies are authorized for educational, research affairs and directorial activities as powerful NGOs. Therefore board of the directors of Iranian society of radiology, chairman of the board, secretary and scientific consultants have been urged to increase both countrywide and international activities. Attending in ECR 2008, 2009 and Asian-ocean congresses are examples of these activities.
25th annual congress is a turning point in international scenes. Very important European and international directorial and academic persons attend in this congress that undoubtedly is a great step in progress of radiology in Iran.
Invitation an Iranian representative for executive committees of ESR is a fruition of two years international activity of Iranian society of radiology. Submission of 49 abstracts and acceptance of seven of those in ECR2009 is a good record for Iranian radiologists.
The president of 25th congress who has chaired Informatics conferences in 2007 and 2008 has shown a splendid face of himself and undoubtedly is one of the members of future board of directors. Mansoor Fatehi has attended in RSNA 2008 and ECR 2008 and has given speech too and he is the first radiologist who has given speech in RSNA from inside of Iran.
Development of MR sciences, interventional radiology and new volumetric X-ray CT are the newest and most amazing phenomena which has shown radiology above all medical branches and make it possible to cooperate with clinical medicine.
We appreciate all Iranian and foreign guests specially ESR leaders to attend in this congress in Tehran. You are very welcome to Iran.
