It’s an honor to give my observation about my experience at AOCR-2010. From the tiniest to the biggest, all details-be it the front office, registration counter, information desk, or audio-visual aids-were excellent.

The topics covered in the conference were very good. All the speakers, both local and international, were well selected and added to the conference. I feel richer in knowledge after returning home.

I think radiology was nicely and elaborately covered in the conference. One thing I cannot forget is that knowing the clinical condition of a patient definitely helps in proper, relevant, and accurate reporting. The many scientific and e-posters were also very informative and innovative. This has given me new insight in preparing new seminar topics and making better presentations.

The topics covered were very informative and speakers’ simplicity and confidence while reporting and presenting, especially the international speakers, taught me a lot. Of course, I know this ease in front of an audience comes from hard work and dedication.

I liked all the scientific topics, but to me the most appealing and educational were:

  • The use of MRI for early detection of cancer and monitoring of treatment

  • Orbital and middle ear imaging

  • Interventional and musculoskeletal imaging topics

  • Image interpretation sessions

To sum up, AOCR 2010 was a one-stop shop for me to increase my knowledge.


I also thoroughly enjoyed the award ceremony/President’s Dinner & Taiwan night. The president’s dinner was especially memorable to me as I was awarded the Young Investigator Scholarship.

From the bottom of my heart and with all humbleness and honesty, I would like to congratulate all the team members of AOCR 2010 for organizing such a beautiful event.
