The Value Based Radiology Survey in Asia-Oceania by June 4, 2022


In 2021, the Asian Oceanian Society of Radiology (AOSR) participated in the International Society for Strategic Studies in Radiology (IS3R) Value Based Radiology (VBR) strategic planning process. Since then, the IS3R has ratified the VBR Strategic Plan to promote VBR worldwide.
This survey is open to all radiologists, radiology & hospital management and related healthcare policy and decision makers.

- Google Survey Link:

If you could not access to the above link, please kindly find the attached survey form, complete it and send to the office ( by June 4, 2022.

Thank you for participating in this survey. In the process, we hope this will create greater awareness of how we can bring value or if already practicing aspects of VBR, how we can enhance value to our patients and all the healthcare stakeholders.

[About the AOSR VBR Survey]

The 29 questions in this survey are based on the Prioritized Tactics of the Strategic Plan- summarized as follows:

  • Appropriate use criteria: Expand impact of AUC and decision support by seeking greater input from non-radiology specialty societies
  • Quality Safety: Prevent/reduce duplicate follow-up exams by ensuring secure access to patient imaging and reports within a centre and region/country
  • Economics: Industry partners expand understanding of imaging equipment purchases with key performance indicators that measure patient outcomes
  • Communication 1 : Research/training in direct patient communication and establish database of good radiologist communicators to be made available to the mass media
  • Communication 2: Develop tool/app to provide patients with disease/imaging specific information, patient-friendly decision support, and report in lay language
  • Collaboration: Radiologists and referrers work in multidisciplinary teams to better understand each other's needs and respond to critical gaps in patient care.

For the details, please download the IS3R VBR Strategic Plan Oct 2021 from this link

Inaugural ASIASAFE MR Safety Webinar, 5 Dec 2021


Dear Colleagues,

Awareness needs to be foremost in the minds of everyone involved in the provision of MR services and those who utilise it - all allied health staff including those just involved in transporting patients for MR scans. MRI zoning, metal detectors have been promoted including training on MR safety related matters. Yet, fatal accidents continue to happen every few years, since 2001 - the latest in South Korea on 18th Oct 2021.

Register for this webinar - with perspectives from radiologists on the topic
What Lessons Have We Learnt from MR Accidents?
Date: 5th Dec, 6.30pm (GMT +8)

Attendance is free but requires registration at

Dr Ma Theresa Buenaflor, Philippines
Dr Anirudh Kohli, India

This activity follows the AOSR Quality, Safety and Standards Committee Survey on MRI Safety Awareness that took place the month of October 2021.

We look forward to seeing you at the webinar - and start the discussion on this HOT TOPIC Of MR Safety.

Regards and thanks.




Atlas of Non-FDG PET–CT in Diagnostic Oncology
IAEA Human Health Series No. 38


Fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) has proven benefits as a positron emission tomography (PET) radiopharmaceutical in oncology. However, it has limitations in the assessment of certain tumours, above all (but not only) prostate cancer. Therefore, several non-FDG PET radiopharmaceuticals have been introduced into the clinical arena over the last few years, and this trend will continue to spread. The use of PET/CT with different PET radiopharmaceuticals that tailor to the type of tumour and biologic process that needs to be assessed is part of personalized precision medicine. The objective of this publication is to provide a case-based way of understanding normal biodistribution, variants, and pitfalls, including several examples of typical patterns for the main indications for each of the new non-FDG PET radiopharmaceuticals. This should facilitate the interpretation of images to support accurate diagnosis. This Atlas will allow professionals interested in non-FDG PET/CT imaging to embrace the variety of oncological imaging by providing clinically relevant teaching files on the effectiveness and diagnostic quality of non-FDG-PET/CT imaging in routine applications.

STI/PUB/1924, 239 pp., 245 figs.; 2021; ISBN: 978-92-0-128920-9, English, 44.00 Euro

MRI Safety Webinar on October 17, 2021




Invitation to the Launch of the Lancet Commission on Diagnostics


The Commission aims to address the disparities in access to diagnostics in low- and middle-income countries. All aspects of treatment and management of the patient – effective treatment and care, reduced harm and ensured safety – depend on having an accurate diagnosis. To obtain such diagnoses, robust and reliable Pathology and Laboratory Medicine (PALM) and Imaging services are critical elements of a fully functioning health system.

The Commission will launch on October 7th, 2021, at 8 am EST / 1 pm UK / 2 pm CET., The findings will also be published on the same day. Multiple people from the same organization are able to attend the event, with no registration cap.

Safer Maternal and Newborn Care – the Role of Ultrasound
Tuesday, September 14, 3pm-5pm CEST

Chairs: Guy Frija (ISR) and Jacques Abramowicz (WFUMB)
The webinar will be held in celebration of World Patient Safety Day (WPSD), which is commemorated annually on 17 September. WPSD was established by the World Health Assembly in 2019 with the objective to enhance global understanding of patient safety, increase public engagement in healthcare safety, and promote global action to prevent and reduce avoidable harm in healthcare.

The focus of WPSD this year is on safety in maternal and newborn care, calling on all stakeholders to come together and “Act now for safe and respectful childbirth”. This is particularly important in the context of the disruption of health services caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, but also in the light of gender equity and violence issues and the effort to link respectful healthcare with safety.

The webinar will feature high-level speakers from WHO, radiology, ultrasound, radiological technology and midwifery, among others, and will take into account the situation in different areas of the world, including low- and middle-Income countries.

The detailed program will be announced shortly.
Registration is FREE of charge.
