The author discusses the importance of imaging methods in the practice of oncology at the Colégio Brasileiro de Radiologia e Diagnóstico por Imagem (CBR) in Brazil. He mentions that CBR has established a Commission for Imaging in Oncology to spread the scientific knowledge and to prepare professionals for the demands and challenges in imaging diagnosis and therapy. He notes that the commission consists of representatives from reference oncology institutions in the country.
