Greeting from the Conference Chairman

Eisuke Yasuda
(The Gifu Association of Radiological Technologists Chairman)

The 32nd Japan Conference of Radiological Technologists will be held in our Prefecture. I will make my utmost efforts to see this Conference to a successful conclusion.

The Conference will be held for three days from Friday, September 16 through Sunday, September 18, 2016 at the Nagaragawa Convention Center and at the neighboring Gifu Miyako Hotel in Gifu City. We are earnestly preparing for the Conference.

The Conference is the annual conference where radiologic technologists gather from all over Japan to give academic presentations and speeches, study radiologic technologies in order to improve the quality of members and deepen the relationship between members. We have established “Let’s promote team medical care with fellow citizens!” as our main theme and “Tackling the Challenge of Examining and Treating Cancer – How far does our role take us?” as the sub-theme of the Conference.

Cancer has been ranked as the leading cause of death since 1981. Today, more than 300,000 citizens die from cancer each year. This means one out of three persons died from cancer. The possibility of contracting cancer in our lives is estimated to be one out of two men and one out of three women. Therefore, it is no exaggeration to say that cancer is a national affliction of the Japanese. We are called on to provide our expertise as members of team medical treatment of cancer and to consider how to harmonize our medical care technology and knowledge with the team, how far we can assume the role, and how far we can approach the treatment for patients. I hope this Conference can provide you an opportunity to reconsider the roles of radiologic technologists who are involved in cancer treatment and to train ourselves to be devoted to this work every day.

In this Conference we will hold productive discussions aiming to practice quality, reassurance, and safe medical care as members of team medical care of cancer by using expertise and technology of radiologic medical care. We are looking forward to seeing a large number of participants.

About Gifu

Sightseeing:
The Nagaragawa Convention Center, the venue of the Conference, is an international convention facility located on the right bank of a clear stream, the Nagara River, which runs through the Nobi Plain at the foot of Mt. Kinka. It is next to the other venue, the Gifu Miyako Hotel. Gifu Castle was built on the top of M t. Kinka, at 329m elevation. From the tower of Gifu Castle to which you can climb by cable car, you will have a 360-degree panorama view of the expansive Nobi Plain and you can feel the ambition that Nobunaga (Japanese warrior) felt for unifying Japan. During the period from May through October, traditional cormorant fishing is performed on the Nagara River, as indicated in the Nihonshoki (Chronicles of Japan, the second oldest history book of classical Japan) and Kojiki (Records of Ancient Matters, the oldest history book of classical Japan). The Usho, or fishing masters, pilot a boat with a fire attached to the front, and command the cormorants by calling “Ho Ho” to catch ayu, a freshwater fish. It is very appealing. In addition, there is Kawara-machi Street which was once a lively street when many boats carrying timber and Mino Japanese paper, a specialty of Gifu, came down the Nagara River. It is a pleasant place to stroll while thinking of the prosperity of a bygone era. As a local excursion, there is Gero Spa. It has been one of the leading spas in Japan since Edo period, along with the Kusatsu and Arima Spas. The water is mild and has little scent. It is famous for creating smooth skin and it is known as a spa for beauty.
Neighboring Cities:
Gifu Prefecture, which is one of major production areas of Japanese cypress in Japan, is a major manufacturing place for masu (wooden box cups) that are made of Japanese cypress. Ogaki City is famous for its masu that are essential for drinking during a celebration. Blades manufactured in Seki City, which carries on the techniques of master sword makers, are appreciated as souvenirs because of their high quality. Sekigahara-Cho is the historical location of the Battle of Sekigahara.
Cuisine:
As for cuisine in Gifu, you cannot miss the famous Hida beef and ayu, a freshwater fish. In addition, Hoba miso (beef and vegetables cooked with Miso on a magnolia leaf) is best when paired with steamed rice.

I hope you can also enjoy the pleasures of sightseeing during the Conference.
The Conference Executive Committee and all of Gifu Prefecture look forward to seeing all of you from all over Japan in Gifu Prefecture.
