IS3R: Podcasts and Global Scan Update

【AOSR事務局からのお知らせ】(2022.11.14付)

Dear IS3R Members, ELC Members, Extraordinary Members and Corporate Partners,

I am pleased to announce the online posting of the Fall 2022 Global scan content. As you may recall, Global Scan consists of short summaries highlighting strategic initiatives from a number of “Extraordinary Member” societies. The purpose is to make the broader membership aware of these initiatives and to promote enhanced cooperation and collaboration globally. A review of this month’s posts shows a convergence of focus on key strategic issues that face our field. These included value-based radiology initiatives, enhanced efforts at communication to patients and providers, and efforts to address issues of equality, diversity, and fairness among society members in these different organizations.

In this posting, the ACR (American College of Radiology) reports on the development of appropriateness criteria for 8 new topics and interesting the development of patient-friendly summaries of the existing appropriateness criteria with some video animations suitable for patients and referring physicians to aid in communications. The ACR also describes the launch of a new registry of patients with Alzheimer’s Disease (ALZ NET) who have undergone treatment. The goal is to track long term outcomes in patients undergoing a number of different treatments.

The AOSR (Asian-Oceanian Society of Radiology) has identified “value-based radiology” as a key initiative, and has surveyed membership to help focus this effort. The results suggest that improvement of communication with patients and providers is a high priority area. In addition, the results suggest a need to increase efforts on development and promotion of appropriate use criteria as well as on enhanced tools for structured reporting.

The ESR (European Society of Radiology) reports on a large scale effort to directly engage with patients. This was a focus of the 2022 Annual meeting. Meeting-related content on this topic is available for review through “ESR Connect.” They have also launched an exciting initiative called “Be Accepted, “to provide a range of useful information for women with cancer.

The RSNA reports on the continuing development of its Global Learning Center initiative which aims to enhance radiologic education and patient care globally. Working with sites in different regions the content can be customized to the specific needs in each location.

The WFUMB reports on the efforts of a task force enhance the society governance and to promote equality, diversity and fairness among members. They also announced a new open access journal that they are launching.

Three new video podcasts with new IS3R members are also posted. These include conversations with Prof. Richard Ehman, from Rochester Minnesota, Prof. Alexander Norbash of San Diego, California and Prof. Ulrike Attenberger of Bonn, Germany. I want to thank the ACR for their support of the production of these podcasts.

I hope you will all enjoy getting to know these remarkable leaders through these conversations.
I hope you enjoy this edition of Global Scan and as always, I welcome your comments and suggestions.

Best Regards,
Herbert Y. Kressel, Scientific and Communications Director

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

【AOSRからの情報】(2022.5.11付)

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: https://forms.gle/uXNAryefY9rECFYLA

If you could not access to the above link, please kindly find the attached survey form, complete it and send to the office (office@aosr.kr) 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

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

Invitation to the Launch of the Lancet Commission on Diagnostics

【AOSR事務局からのお知らせ】(2021.9.17付)

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.

The registration link is:
