Welcome Message

greeting-121officer-kanematsu-nobuyukiI am honored to announce here the 121st Scientific Meeting of Japan Society of Medical Physics (JSMP). This meeting will be held as a part of joint congress JRC2021 organized by the Japan Radiology Congress (JRC) in conjunction with the 80th Annual Meeting of the Japan Radiological Society (JRS), the 77th Annual Meeting of the Japanese Society of Radiological Technology (JSRT), and the International Technical Exhibition of Medical Imaging (ITEM) 2021 organized by the Japan Medical Imaging and Radiological Systems Industries Association (JIRA). The participants of this meeting will be able to attend all parts of JRC2021. A special feature of JRC2021 is that it is a hybrid-type congress: We are organizing a real congress in Yokohama on 15–18 April 2021 accompanied by a web site for on-demand delivery of the recordings. We intend to serve the best reasonable congress to the participants regardless of the spread of COVID-19, which is unpredictable.

The theme of JRC2021 is “Milestones and Beyond”. Radiology started with the discovery of x rays by Roentgen on November 8, 1895, which is commemorated every year as “World Roentgen Day”. Marie Curie who discovered radium and promoted its medical use also developed Roentgen cars and drove various places for clinical practice. Her birthday November 7 is commemorated as “International Day of Medical Physics”. Radiology and medical physics have continued to develop with other sciences and technologies. Congress JRC or its predecessor JMCP has been a venue for scientific exchange and a showcase of radiological devices since 1988. Our society JSMP started its history by formation of Physics Expert Group in JRS in March 1961. Year 2021 happens to be the 60th anniversary, which is celebrated in East Asia as a return of Chinese zodiac cycle, the combination of 10 stems (5 elements, young or old) and 12 branches (animals). Year 2021 is the year of gold-young and ox.

In this commemorative meeting, we are organizing JSMP-JSRT Joint International Sessions, which collect English presentations nominated as President’s Award candidates. The JSMP International Affairs Committee is organizing a symposium on international cooperation for medical physics in the Asia Oceania region. We ask each of you, a medical physics researcher in the world, to present your recent research for international scientific exchange. You will also have a unique opportunity to see a collection of state-of-the-art radiological products in the ITEM exhibition. We are looking forward to welcoming all of you from all over the world to the 121st Scientific Meeting of JSMP in the JRC2021 congress, Yokohama, April 2021.
