Updated 4 August 2023

Dates: 19-21 October 2023

Venue: Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre

Collaborations with our fellow clinicians are becoming increasingly important in the face of advancing medical knowledge and technology. These collaborations ensure the best patient outcomes in the era of personalised medicine.

Multidisciplinary sessions bridging across radiology, radiation oncology and interventional radiology will form a keystone of our scientific program. In addition to a robust scientific program we will focus on leadership, professional wellbeing and adjuncts to improve patient outcomes.

We hope our program delivers beyond the traditional day-to-day of our disciplines and provides a vision for innovative quality health care.
