Address of the President of the “Radiology 2019”

Screening in oncology. A warning. Identify Treatment.

Screening (from the English. Screening - mass screening) -      complex of measures in the health care system, carried out in order to detect and prevent the development of various      diseases in the population.
The purpose of screening is possible early detection of diseases, which allows for      early treatment based on patient relief and reduced mortality (Wikipedia).

Dear colleagues!

In his address to the Federal Assembly, President of the Russian Federation V.V. Putin      put forward two main tasks, namely: raising the level of education and health, especially in the field of      oncology. This is understandable if we refer to the annual register of oncological diseases of the Russian      Federation under the editorship of Academician RAS Kaprin A.D.

The solution of these problems over the years, in more or less     a lesser degree, was reflected in the work of the congresses "Radiology". However, the current stage is characterized by     the need to create a significant breakthrough in solving problems of oncology. And this, first of all, concerns the early     diagnostics of oncological diseases, development of necessary drugs and diagnostic     equipment. To solve such an important problem as early diagnosis, it is necessary to develop and implement     screening programs. And there are already such programs for cancer of the breast, lung, prostate,     melanoma, colorectal cancer. The development, implementation and successful application of screening programs in oncology should     be based on an interdisciplinary approach. This, first of all, depends on the close interaction of diagnosticians     with clinicians. Equally important is the continuity in the work of doctors diagnosticians. Today we have     A sufficient number of high-tech equipment. This is an expert class ultrasound, MSCT with the ability     bolus contrasting and 3D multiplanar reconstructions (MPR), 1.5 and 3T MRI, hybrid methods such as     SPECT / CT, PET, PET / CT, PET / MRI, angiographic installations, etc. Possibilities and views on diagnostics change     many diseases. It is possible not only to assess the anatomical changes, but also functional ones.     It will probably take a little more time, and we will be able to go from the diagnosis of macroscopic changes to     microscopic. This is facilitated by many techniques that are already being successfully applied now. These are different     types of contrast enhancements with the study of perfusion with CT and MRI, this is also DWI, SWI, 3D MR RAGE), 3D TOF MRA and 4D - MRA     (for vessels), intellectual technologies: MRI CardioLine, NeuroLine. The main task is to create     common views and approaches, in the performed research, analysis of their results, which in combination with the clinical     picture of the disease and morphological data allow us to confidently achieve reliable results in the early     diagnosis of cancer. Of course, we must not forget that the equipment available in our arsenal     allows not only to conduct various studies, but also with success to be used to perform diagnostic     manipulations for the purpose of morphological study of detected changes. And as a result - the right choice of type and     the amount of treatment needed, evaluation of its effectiveness. All this allows us to achieve not only good results.     treatment, increase the survival time after treatment, but also to maintain the patient’s quality of life, as well as     reduce financial costs, which also plays an important role. That is, fast, reliable and less expensive.

Along with this, of course, of particular importance, as in previous years,      plays the problem of training on the basis of the accumulated material and the emergence of new developments.

I would like to express my gratitude to all members of the organizing committee and      personally academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences Ternovomu S.K. for the nomination of my candidacy as president of the congress "Radiology -      2019 ".

I am confident that, as in previous years, we will manage to hold a congress.      at a high professional level, interesting and informative.

President of the Congress "Radiology - 2019"
