The History of Macau Radiology Association

The Macau Radiology Association (MRA) was founded in 2000. It is a non-profit professional organization formed by practicing radiologists, radiographers, radiology nurses and technologists. The objectives of the association are to develop the professional field of radiology, improve professional standards and protect reasonable rights of its members. The association has been emerging since its foundation and the number of members has reached 141 in 2015.

The association brings together the radiology professionals from various institutions in Macau. Continuous efforts have been made to run scientific meetings and personnel have been sent to other places for exchange and visits over the years. All these aim to improve the professional standard and seek innovative developments in the field of radiology in Macau, so as to reinforce the worldwide connection and integrate with international medical technology. At the same time, in order to contribute to social harmony and development, we exchange information about our profession with the people of Macau by means of academic activities, which in turns raises social awareness about the importance of the radiology profession in the context of Macau healthcare. We have also tried to diversify by adding cultural and recreational activities to our annual scientific meetings. This adds color to our serious medical topics in the same way we obtain happiness and satisfaction from providing accurate diagnoses and saving lives.

The rapid development in the field of radiology has given rise to the emergence of a large number of new imaging technology and application. As well as the rapid development of intervention radiology in recent years, not only the radiology profession plays an important role in medical diagnosis, it also exists as a therapeutic modality simultaneously with internal medicine and surgery. For instance, endovascular intervention has become the primary treatment for particular vascular diseases. Only through continuous efforts to improve the standard of radiology professionals in Macau can the expectation and needs of Macau citizen be fulfilled. The Macau Government has founded the Conselho para os Assuntos Médicos (Medical Affairs Council) recently, which aims at establishing a system for qualification, certification and registration of radiology professionals working either in public or private institution in a few years’ time. Regarding to this matter of future legislation, the Macau Radiology Association as a radiology organization has also been active in providing professional opinions to the Macau SAR Government.

It has been 15 years since the foundation of the Macau Radiology Association. We persist continuous learning and raising the professional standard by holding scientific activities with different themes throughout the years in our annual scientific meetings. Not only is our responsibility to provide quality medical services to the people of Macau, but also our commitment that we will make unremitting efforts to continue to promote the radiology profession in the coming future.
