FY Khoo Lecturer

Dr Khoo Fun Yong is well recognized as the ‘Father’ of Radiology in Singapore. He was the first local radiologist to head the Department of Radiology, Singapore General Hospital. In those days, this encompassed diagnostic radiology and therapeutic radiology as well as nuclear medicine. During his long and illustrious career, he has trained numerous radiologists, many of whom have been or are in leadership positions today.

To honor Dr Khoo for his numerous achievements and the influence he has had on radiology in Singapore, the Chapter of Radiologists, Academy of Medicine, Singapore (now known as the College of Radiologists, Singapore), in conjunction with the Singapore Radiological Society, decided to establish the F Y Khoo Lecture in 2004. The inaugural lecture was delivered by Dr Chow Khuen Wai, Past Master of the Academy of Medicine, Singapore, in 2004, with Dr Khoo Fun Yong as the guest of honor. When Dr Khoo passed away in late 2004, the lecture was renamed the F Y Khoo Memorial Lecture

The lecture will be held annually and delivered during the Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) of the Singapore Radiological Society (SRS) and the College of Radiologists, Singapore (CRS).
