Australian Society of Medical Imaging and Radiation Therapy
The Australian Society of Medical Imaging and Radiation Therapy is the peak body representing medical radiation practitioners in Australia.
Radiation therapy plays a crucial role in ensuring that the prescribed radiation dose reaches the tumour, and the radiation exposure to healthy tissue surrounding the tumour is as low as possible.
Radiation therapists are an integral part of the Radiation Oncology team that plans and delivers this treatment.
We are proud to support the work of Radiation Oncology: Targeting Cancer in raising awareness among health professionals, primary care providers and patients on the key role played by radiation therapists in cancer treatment.
