The BIR Annual Congress continues to grow. After a sell out exhibition in 2017, we are moving to a bigger venue – etc. venues St Paul’s – for 2018! We have also added a third stream of presentations, which will attract an even wider range of top health professionals and decision makers.

There is also an informal evening event including welcome drinks and a three-course dinner. This multidisciplinary event will appeal to anyone within radiology, radiation oncology and the underlying sciences, including radiologists, physicists, radiology managers, radiographers, oncologists, clinical scientists, physicians, radiation protection advisers and supervisors.
