After some very successful collaborations in recent years, we have reached out to national partner organizations such as the Canadian Association of Radiologists (CAR), the Canadian Association of Nuclear Medicine (CANM), the Canadian Interventional Radiologists Association (CIRA), as well as the Canadian Association of Radiation Oncologists (CARO) and the Canadian Organization of Medical Physicists (COMP) to begin exploring collaborative conferences starting in 2018. These meetings will provide MRTs with access to the most relevant trends, research and clinical applications, and an excellent opportunity to network and collaborate with the professionals they work with on a daily basis

So far, we have 4 confirmed collaborations with specialty organizations in 2018. Details for these will be added as they become available – stay tuned.
