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. Taking place over two days, the event provides excellent opportunities to meet delegates and network in an open and relaxed environment. 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.

Who should attend?
Anyone with an interest and passion for radiology, radiation oncology and the underlying sciences, including radiologists, physicists, radiographers, oncologists, physicians, radiation protection advisers and supervisors.
