President's Welcome Message

Noriyuki Tomiyama


I am Professor Noriyuki Tomiyama from Osaka University, and I have had the privilege of serving as the President of the Asian Oceanian Society of Radiology (AOSR) since 2023. It is my distinct pleasure and honor to extend a warm welcome to everyone attending the 23rd Asian Oceanian Congress of Radiology (AOCR 2025) in Chennai, hosted by the Indian Radiological and Imaging Association (IRIA). Notably, IRIA previously hosted the 6th AOCR in New Delhi in 1991 and the 17th AOCR in Mumbai in 2018.

On behalf of AOSR, we extend our deepest gratitude to IRIA for hosting AOCR 2025. We anticipate another successful event and an enriching experience. Congratulations to Dr. V.N. Varaprasad, President of IRIA, and Dr. T.S. Swaminathan and Dr. N. Kulasekaran, Patrons of AOCR 2025. Additionally, we express our appreciation to Dr. C. Amarnath, the Organizing Chairman, Dr. L. Murali Krishna, the Organizing Secretary, and all staff members contributing to this outstanding congress.

The theme for AOCR 2025, 'Clinical Radiology Decoded - See like a Surgeon: Think Like a Physician,' sets a clear direction for radiologists. As diagnostic modalities such as CT and MR continue to advance and new scanning techniques emerge, radiologists play an increasingly crucial role, making significant contributions to healthcare.

Chennai is the gateway to South Indian art, culture, and traditions, encompassing resplendent classical dance, the rich flavors of its iconic cuisine, and a wealth of ancient temples and natural wonders. I am sure we would all enjoy our time there during AOCR 2025.

See you in Chennai!
