Scientific Meeting Planning Committee is pleased to invite you to the 2017 RSS Annual Scientific Meeting. Our theme for 2017 is Bridging the Gap: Improving Patient Care through Science & Innovation.
Our stereotactic radiosurgery/stereotactic body radiation therapy (SRS/SBRT) Scientific Meeting is a unique opportunity for radiation oncologists, neurosurgeons, surgeons, oncologists, medical physicists, industry leaders and all SRS/SBRT healthcare providers to come together in a professional environment to exchange knowledge, break down barriers and work together to advance the field of SRS/SBRT.
The RSS is one of the only conferences that provides you an "all-inclusive" experience that allows you to expand your learning and collaborating opportunities over daily lunch buffets and evening hosted events.
This year’s meeting, spanning three full days, will cover clinical and technical aspects of SRS/SBRT intracranial and extracranial applications. Join your colleagues and industry leaders as we exchange information and ideas during lectures, panel discussions, poster presentations, workshops, the Performance & Quality Improvement Session, the SRS/SBRT Dosimetry Plan Study Challenge, and the highly anticipated Showdown Debates - "The Clash of the Titans".
STATEMENT OF NEED
