British Institute of Radiology Announces New SIG
The British Institute of Radiology announces the merger of two BIR special interest groups—Radiotherapy Physics and Oncology and Radiotherapy, which will now be known as the BIR Oncology and Radiotherapy SIG. The two SIGs recognised that their interests were increasingly converging and the meetings they were organising overlapped.
Both SIGs agreed that this will strengthen and enhance the activities and multidisciplinary nature of the new single group to benefit the membership as a whole.
The next event organised by the SIG is “Diagnostic radiology for advanced head and neck cancer planning” on 2 October 2014.
The Chair of the new group will be Dr Alex Stewart, Consultant Clinical Oncologist, from Royal Surrey County Hospital.
Dr Stewart said about the merger “The new Oncology and Radiotherapy group brings together specialists from all disciplines in the field of cancer imaging and it’s very exciting to be collaborating on events which will showcase the very best research and clinical work in this area from across the UK.”
All BIR members are welcome to join the BIR Oncology and Radiotherapy SIG. Simply join online at www.bir.org.uk
The BIR welcomes applications to serve on the management group from all members from disciplines associated with radiotherapy and oncology.
