ASTRO's Annual Meeting is the premier radiation oncology scientific event in the world and draws more than 11,000 attendees each year. During the 2014 Annual Meeting, we will highlight science that showcases how technology and biology advance the field and improve patient outcomes and quality of life.

The scientific program will continue to be the ideal platform to bring together clinicians, scientists and researchers from all oncology disciplines to exchange ideas, promote multidisciplinary care and address the educational and professional development interests of our attendees. Scientific and educational sessions will cover specific clinical areas including breast, central nervous system, gastrointestinal, genitourinary, gynecologic, head and neck, lymphoma, musculoskeletal, pediatric, sarcoma and thoracic cancers. Radiation biology and radiation physics concepts will be explored in their own tracks.

The Annual Meeting will feature a continued emphasis on patient quality and safety issues in the delivery of radiation therapy in the areas of treatment techniques, equipment, terminology and professional responsibilities. Program content has been designed to address specific documented and clinically important practice gaps in physician knowledge and competence.

Conflict of Interest Policy

  • A balanced view of therapeutic options will be given.
  • A scientifically rigorous review.
  • Use of generic names to contribute to impartiality. If trade names are included in your presentation, trade names for several companies should be used where available.
