From the President’s Desk – 2020

Asalamualaikum and Salam Sejahtera,

I am honoured to be elected as the President of the College of Radiology, Academy of Medicine of Malaysia for 2020-2022. The College of Radiology or CoR is a non-profit professional body that aims to serve patients and society by maximizing the value of our radiology fraternity consisting of Clinical Radiologist, Clinical Oncologist and Nuclear Medicine Physicist.

As the world evolves, our fraternity faces several challenges in delivering our care to patients and society. Artificial Intelligence with superior data processing capabilities is one. I believe we have a role in bridging the gap between AI and patient care. We should embrace practices that maintains or improves effectiveness and efficiency in the health care systems. One of the ways is to have a synergistic working environment through education and continuous dialogues.

The College will plan for continuous medical education via workshops by our Special Interest Groups and large conferences catering to all groups that contribute to medical imaging. Through constant updates of our best practices, we can deliver our best to the public in Malaysia.

The world is now just a connection or a screen away. We have to be prepared for the shift of medical care from national to global. Here, the CoR is planning to play a larger role regionally and internationally by enhancing and encouraging our collaborations with other societies such as AAR, AOSR, RSNA and ESR.

I am committed to preparing our College members for the change in paradigm for healthcare. At the heart of it all, we must never forget that the notion of this College is to serve the patients and society with Best Practices.

Sincerely,

Prof Dr Norlisah Mohd Ramli
