The Singapore Radiological Society (SRS) was founded in 1977. It is a not-for-profit, non-governmental society of radiologists, nuclear medicine physicians and therapeutic radiologists in Singapore.
The SRS has various subsections which represent subspecialties such as Interventional Radiology, Neuroradiology and Radiation Oncology.
We are dedicated primarily to continuing medical education (CME). Activities include lectures and workshops conducted throughout the year, as well as an annual scientific meeting which is often combined with large regional and international conferences. The International Congress of Radiology in 1994, with an attendance of 3000. The SRS will continue to host several large meetings over the next few years.
The SRS also promotes linkages with fellow radiological societies overseas, in order to further the cause of diagnostic imaging and therapy worldwide. We are a member of regional and international societies of radiology including the ASEAN Association of Radiology (AAR), the Asia-Oceanian Society of Radiology (AOSR), the International Society of Radiology (ISR), the Asian-Oceanian Society of Neuroradiology and Head & Neck Radiology (AOSNHNR), and the Asia Pacific Society of Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology (APSVIR).
FY KHOO MEMORIAL LECTURES
Dr Khoo Fun Yong is well recognized as the ‘Father’ of Radiology in Singapore. He was the first local radiologist to head the Department of Radiology at the Singapore General Hospital. During his long and illustrious career, he has trained numerous radiologists, many of whom have been or are in leadership positions today. To honour Dr Khoo for his numerous achievements and the influence he has had on radiology in Singapore, the College of Radiologists, Singapore, in conjunction with the Singapore Radiological Society, has decided to establish the F Y Khoo Lectureship.
The lecture will be held annually and delivered during the Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) of the Singapore Radiological Society (SRS) and the College of Radiologists, Singapore (CRS). The topic of the lecture is of professional, academic or scientific content that is related to Radiology. The lecturer should preferably be a prominent local member of the radiological community, although an overseas lecturer can be appointed. The overseas lecturer, if selected, should be from the faculty of the ASM for that year.
