About the Meeting
This year's program will be held in the Anaheim Convention Center. The education program and professional program will offer a significant opportunity to gain practical knowledge on emerging technical and professional issues. The scientific program will feature the latest research in the physics of medical imaging and radiation therapy, including a major focus on the increasing integration on advanced imaging technologies in the guidance of medical therapeutics. This year, the scientific program will also offer a special three-day track on ultrasound.
Located in the heart of sunny Southern California, Anaheim is the perfect venue to enjoy time outside catching up with colleagues and visiting nearby attractions with your whole family. This unique region has a vibrant yet laid-back vibe with a diverse range of activities making it one of the nation's most popular destinations. We look forward to seeing you in Anaheim for the 57th Annual Meeting & Exhibition!
