This year's program will be held in the Indiana 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.

There is more to Indianapolis than its annual 500-mile race. There are more than 85 restaurants in the Wholesale District neighborhood surrounding the convention center. Visitors will enjoy the famous local hospitality as well as the farm-to-table trend. Many chefs have partnered with Indiana farmers to bring the freshest ingredients to menus. Indy is a walkable city; Monument Circle was recently named one of the "10 Great Public Spaces" by the American Planning Association. The Virginia Fairbanks Art & Nature Park features 100 acres of public art. Make plans now to join us in Indianapolis for the 55th Annual Meeting and Exhibition!
