I am delighted to invite you to the 13th Radiotechnology Congress and Training Seminars with International Participation to be held under the auspices of TMRT-Der (Turkish Association of Medical Radiotechnology) on April 23 to 26, 2018 at Kaya Artemis Hotel, Northern Cyprus.
Conventions offer opportunities to keep up with scientific and technological innovations, exchange know-how, and network with each other. We are going to avail ourselves of this opportunity once again this year.
The foundations of the Turkish Association of Medical Radiotechnology was laid at the Radiology Seminar organized in Antalya back in 1992 as it was originally established under the title of the Medical Radiology Technicians on 27th of December, 1995 that marked the 100th anniversary of the X-ray discovery. Upon the permission granted by the Turkish Ministry of Interior in 1998, the word "Turkish" was incorporated into the title of the association that was later named as the Turkish Association of Medical Radiotechnology in a fashion to serve for all colleagues working in the disciplines of radiology, radiotherapy and nuclear medicine and those focused on ionizing radiation
Committed to protecting health, safeguarding personal rights, stepping the level of education up to undergraduate degree, coming up with proper terms of reference for the profession, and setting professional competencies, the association underscores on every occasion the fact that it is imperative to set a wages policy in accordance with workload and occupational risks involved. We exert efforts to prevent any loss of individual rights.
TMRT-DER is a member of the International Society of Radiographers & Radiological Technologists (ISRRT), and now capable of being represented at the global stage, exchanging views, meeting the same number of professional standards with all the other countries, and forging a vision in the light of global developments.
On the national front, the association cooperates and carries out joint efforts with the Turkish Society of Radiology and the Turkish Society of Magnetic Resonance.
Just like it has been the case before, Prof. Tamer Kaya from the Turkish Society of Radiology is set to serve as the honorary chairman of the congress. I would like to thank him and all the Executive Board members for their support.
The association's attorneys are going to provide counseling services throughout the congress.
The main theme of the congress, the Scientific Committee of which is to be chaired by Prof. İlhan Erden and Nezaket Özgür, is designated as "Low-Dose Radiation and Technological Developments in All Modalities". This year, we have undergone radical transformation for the congress and paved the way for the release of scientific publications as part of the transformation. The editorial board is going to be chaired by Assoc. Prof. Suzan Şaylısoy and Asst. Prof. Hüseyin Ozan Tekin. The papers to be reviewed by the Scientific Committee are going to be published in prominent journals.
I am honored to invite you to the 13th International Radiotechnology Congress and Training Seminars with International Participation under the auspices of TMRT-DER on April 23 to 26, 2018 at Kaya Artemis Hotel, Northern Cyprus in an effort to claim YOUR PROFESSION and enjoy each other's company.
The Head of the Turkish Association of Medical Radiotechnology
