The ASTRO symposium, Translational Advances in Radiation Oncology and Cancer Imaging, will be held at the Westin Arlington Gateway in Arlington, Va. and will bring medical professionals and scientists together to explore and share research on the uses of molecular imaging in the detection, diagnosis and treatment of cancer. Additional supporters of this meeting include the Radiological Society of North America and Radiation Therapy Oncology Group.
