Welcome!

All sessions and technical exhibits will take place in the George R. Brown Convention Center, 1001 Avenida de las Americas in Houston. The education program and professional program will offer a significant opportunity to gain practical knowledge on emerging technical and professional issues. A major focus of the scientific program is the increasing integration of advanced imaging concepts in the routine practice of various therapies, especially radiotherapy.

Houston, Texas is home to the world's largest concentration of medical professionals. The world-renowned Texas Medical Center is home to more than 42 institutions, including the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center and Baylor College of Medicine.

The Main Event area of downtown Houston spans Main Street between Capitol and Congress. This pedestrian-friendly location showcases some of the city's best restaurants, nightlife and entertainment. Just a few blocks away is the Houston Theater District, ranked second in the nation for the number of theater seats in a concentrated downtown area.

We know you'll find the program and venue especially worthwhile this year, as we celebrate our Golden Anniversary.
