Dear ASAR Members:

It has been eight months since I started my term of ASAR President after ACAR 2017 Busan meeting.

Thanks to the contribution and devotion of member societies, executive council and office of ASAR, our society is running better we are facing a new year 2018.

In 2017, we had successful congress, ACAR 2017 Busan, with more than 600 participants from 29 countries or regions. In last September, we had a successful educational lecture course in Changchun China and we are expecting another educational lecture course in May 2018 in Singapore. One of the most important duty of ASAR is education and we are making ASAR’s educational platform stronger every year. In 2019, we are expecting another wonderful congress, ACAR 2019 in Chengdu China.

ASAR is advancing in size and shape. I look forward to your contribution and collaboration in coming years.
Best wishes,

Seung Hyup KIM
President, Asian Society of Abdominal Radiology (2017-2019)
