It is our great pleasure to welcome you all to the 22nd Asia-Australasia Conference of Radiological Technologists (AACRT 2019) in conjunction with the Australian Society of Medical Imaging and Radiation Therapy’s 14th National Conference (ASMIRT 2019), to be held at Adelaide Convention Centre, from 28-31 March 2019.

The theme of ASMIRT / AACRT 2019 is Better Together - patients, professionals, possibilities. The theme is focused on bringing people together to share information on the latest technologies, of smart ways to use the resources we have for the best possible patient outcomes, and of course to socialise together and make long term friendships and networks – to better our profession, our patients and for our future possibilities.

The combination of the ASMIRT 2019 Conference and the ISRRT’s 22nd Asia Australasia Conference of Radiological Technologists allows for additional international networking and collaboration.

The conference will feature a comprehensive industry exhibition showcasing the latest medical radiation science technologies, up to six concurrent technical sessions over three days, international keynote speakers, a student conference, a vibrant and inclusive social program and a variety of pre-conference workshops and site visits of some of the southern hemispheres leading medical research institutions, all within easy walking distance of the Adelaide Convention Centre. This conference promises to be a great experience where we will all be ‘Better Together”.

We look forward to welcoming you to Adelaide in March 2019 for ASMIRT / AACRT 2019.

Jane Shepherdson and Lyndal Newmarch
