5th MR in RT Symposium
20-23 June 2017
On behalf of the Ingham Institute for Applied Medical Research and the Local Organising Committee, it is our immense pleasure to invite you to join us for the 5th MR in RT Symposium, to be held in Sydney, Australia, from Tuesday 20 – Friday 23 June 2017.
This international conference began in 2013 to meet the growing need for a dedicated meeting in this developing arena. Now in its 5th year, it will be held in the Southern Hemisphere for the first time. Sydney 2017 sees the meeting continue to expand with over 3 days of scientific presentations and engaging discussions.
Our 2017 meeting theme is ‘Image -> Innovate -> Treat’ and will cover education, clinical applications and cutting edge research for MRI in Radiation Therapy. This event is a must attend for Medical Physicists, Radiation Oncologists, Radiologists, Radiation Therapists and all technical professionals interested in advanced Magnetic Resonance applications in Radiation Therapy.
The Symposium will be held at the new International Convention Centre Sydney, which is located on Darling Harbour, one of Sydney’s premier dining and entertainment locations, within its own dynamic, leisure and residential precinct. During your stay why not take in the world famous Vivid Sydney. The world’s largest festival of Music, Light & Ideas is sure to impress. Set across the Sydney city foreshore Vivid Sydney is sure to impress again when it returns for 23 nights from Friday 26 May to Saturday 17 June 2017.
Don’t miss your opportunity to visit The Ingham Institute and Liverpool Cancer Therapy Centre in South Western Sydney, home of the Australian MRI-Linac, a state of the art cancer research technology that couples an MRI with a Linear Accelerator to improve the precision and accuracy of radiotherapy. One of only four such initiatives in the world, this real time MRI guided treatment unit is part of our research and clinical development which includes our MRI-Simulator at Liverpool Hospital.
The technical tour on the last day of the meeting, will involve visiting Liverpool Cancer Therapy Centre and the Ingham Institute Research bunker which houses the Australian MRI-Linac. There will also be an opportunity to the see our clinical 3T scanner in the department which has been used in RT planning for 4 years. Staff will be available to answer questions and demonstrate practical RF coil and patient set up.
We look forward to hosting you for a unique and unforgettable Symposium.
Welcome to Sydney!
