A message from the Asian Musculoskeletal Society:
"On behalf of the Organising Committee, we would like to extend a warm welcome to all delegates who will be joining us for the 11th Annual Scientific Meeting of the Asian Musculoskeletal Society (February 6-7, 2009) and Regional Outreach Program (6thAsian Series) of International Skeletal Society (February 4-5, 2009) in Chiang Mai, Thailand. This year, the meeting will be co-organised with the Faculty of Medicine, Chiang Mai University.
As people have greater longevity and increasing incidence of injury, joint diseases are becoming a more and more important health problem. The tremendous innovation of diagnosis and treatment of joint diseases, together with advances in technology, serve to better patient care. The theme "Imaging of Joint Diseases: A Multimodality Multidisciplinary Approach " reflects our common aim in adopting a multidisciplinary team approach to upgrade professional standards, in order to improve healthcare for our patients.
We hope that you will take this opportunity to gain fruitful information from our experts from Asia, Australia, Europe and North America, and at the same time enjoy the charming culture, nature, cuisine, and warm hospitality of Chiang Mai."
