Welcome Message

Welcome from Dr. Yoshinori Arai, the 13th ACCOMFR President and Dr. Akitoshi Katsumata the 17th JSOMR President
Dear fellow AAOMFR members and Colleagues,

The 13th Asian Oral and Maxillofacial Dental Radiology Society will be held in Gifu, Japan for four days from Thursday, June 4, 2020 to Sunday, July 7. This time, we will hold in conjunction with the 61st Annual Meeting and 17th General Meeting of the Japanese Society of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology (JSOMR).

The 1st ACOMFR was held in Tokyo by Professor Taketo Sasaki of Tokyo Medical and Dental University in 1996 for the development of dental radiology in Asian countries. Subsequently, it has been held in Asian countries every two years, and in 2008 the seventh meeting was held by Professor Tomohiro Okano of Showa University in Nara. It was held in Japan for the first time in 12 years. 2020 is a special year when the Olympics will be held in Tokyo, Japan. We would like you to enjoy the changed Japan.

This year, 20 years has passed since dental CBCT was used for the first time. Recent technological advances in diagnostic imaging and radiation therapy are remarkable, and it is very important to exchange the latest information at both conferences on the background of remarkable economic development of Asian countries.

The congress will be held at “Juroku Plaza”, which is directly connected to Gifu Station. The Chubu International Airport as “Centrair” https://www.centrair.jp/en/index.html is also directly operated by express trains, making it a very accessible the venue from Asian countries.

For four days, we have prepared a variety of programs such as special lectures, luncheon seminars, poster sessions, social gatherings, and congress tours introducing Japanese culture.

We look forward to your participation from all over the world.

Prof. Yoshinori Arai
