We’re gearing up for the 2015 American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) Conference. ASTRO is the premier radiation oncology scientific event in the world and draws more than 11,000 attendees each year. The event will be held from October 18 to 21 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas. The American Cancer Society estimates that nearly two-thirds of cancer patients in the last year will receive radiation therapy for their illness with the intent to cure the cancer. With such a large number of patients using radiation therapy, it has become imperative that radiation therapy companies and the professionals at those companies remain current.
That’s why this event is important for us. Staying up-to-date is important and vital to us in order to provide better linear accelerator service to our customers. The conference will feature over 200 companies exhibiting the latest products and cancer treatments.
The objectives of the 2015 ASTRO conference include:
- To examine the advances in radiation oncology technology that help improve patient outcomes and quality of life.
- To employ quality and safety measures in the delivery of radiation therapy.
- To apply clinical and non-clinical skills demonstrating their ability to provide patient centric and compassionate care.
