Radiation Oncology is a constantly evolving, highly technical field with many varied treatment techniques applicable to many varied oncologic subspecialties. The radiation oncologist, while focusing on his/ her subspecialty must also be aware of new and evolving technologies and treatment techniques in subspecialties other than their own. With the addition of the MRI Linac machine, technology focused care is becoming even more crucial in treating patients. This conference is intended to enhance the overall fund of knowledge required for the radiation oncologist to treat patients in all oncologic subspecialties and to inform the radiation oncologist on quality delivery of these technologies.
