I am delighted to invite you to the 12th Radiotechnology Congress and Training Seminars with International Participation of TMRT-Der (Turkish Association of Medical Radiotechnology) to be held at Papilion Zeugma Hotel Belek, Antalya on April 23-26, 2017.
Congresses provide us with a setting in which we can find opportunities to catch up on scientific and technological innovations, exchange information and network with one another. Once again, we are going to benefit from the same opportunity and gather this year.
The foundations of the Turkish Association of Medical Radiotechnology was laid at the Radiology Seminar held in Antalya back in 1992 and it was founded in the province of Izmir on December 27, 1995, the centenary of the discovery of x-rays, under the title of Medical Radiology Technicians. Featuring the word "Turkish" before the title of our Association by a permission granted by the Turkish Ministry of Interior in 1998, the Turkish Association of Medical Radiotechnology now serves for all colleagues working in the fields of radiology, radiotherapy and nuclear medicine and those with focus on ionizing radiation.
Committed to protecting our healthcare, defending our individual rights, making sure to provide undergraduate education, making a definition of our profession and setting professional competencies, our Association discusses over the necessity to designate the wages policy according to work load and occupational risks on every platform possible and conducts efforts accordingly. We are also exerting efforts to prevent any loss of individual rights.
TMRT-DER is a member of the Internatıonal Society of Radiographers & Radiologıcal Technologısts (ISRRT) and seizes on the opportunity to be represented at the international level, meet the international standards by exchanging views on this platform and create a vision in the light of global developments.
On the national level, we are in cooperation and conducting joint efforts with the Turkish Society of Radiology and the Turkish Society of Magnetic Resonance.
Like every year, the Board will be chaired by the President of the Turkish Society of Radiology under an honorary position and this year, this duty will be executed by Prof. Tamer Kaya. I would like to thank him and the Executive Board for their support.
The attorneys of our association will provide counseling services throughout the Congress.
The main theme of the Congress, the Scientific Board of which will be led by Prof. İlhan Erden and Nezaket Özgür, is designated as "Low Dose Radiation and Technological Developments in All Modalities." We are going through a radical transformation process for our Congress this year and we are clearing the way for publishing scientific studies as a part of this transformation. The Editorial Board will be chaired by Assoc. Prof. Suzan Şanlısoy and Asst. Prof. Hüseyin Ozan Tekin. Studies to be reviewed by the Scientific Board as a part of the Congress will be published in widely-acknowledged journals.
I am honored to invite you to the 12th Radiotechnology Congress and Training Seminars with International Participation of TMRT-Der to be held at Papilion Zeugma Hotel Belek, Antalya on April 23-26, 2017 to claim YOUR PROFESSION and join forces.
The President of the Turkish Association of Medical Radiotechnology
