Welcome to 19th Iranian congress of Radiographic Sciences Association.

On behalf of the President of IRSA, please accept my best wishes for this scientific, informative and enjoyable event.

The medical world has made great strides in the last decade, and imaging has always played a major role in these advances.

Following the outbreak of the Covid-19 corona virus, the important role of imaging (especially CT scan, as the best way to diagnose the disease) was clearly identified. IRSA and the Scientific Committee of the Nineteenth Congress, in spite of this epidemic and the existing limitations, have made every effort to increase the knowledge of radio professionals and to share the capabilities of their colleagues.

Diagnostic radiography is an art and science in which many sub-disciplines are being developed, and radiotechnologists, as a qualified and reliable diagnostic radiograph, must have the necessary information from all the different methods and tools in the field of medical imaging. To be.

Through this conference, we want to engage with all of you in a constructive discussion about the effective and undeniable role of medical imaging in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases. Thus, the Scientific Committee of the Congress, with great effort and care, reviewed the submitted papers and shared the best of them in separate sections such as articles, lectures and posters, which I hope will be useful to all participants.

I would like to thank Dr. Morteza Sanei Taheri, President of ISR, for all the cooperation of the two associations in holding the Congress.

The IRSA and ISR Scientific Committees have made great efforts to improve the scientific level of Congress, and it is commendable.

I congratulate you on your commitment and active participation and wish you all success.
