We are excited to announce that the 9th MR in RT symposium will be hosted on February 6th -8th, 2023 on the beautiful campus of the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) at the Luskin Conference Center (425 Westwood Plaza, Los Angeles, CA 90095). This will be the first in-person meeting after the cancellation in 2020 and the virtual 8th MR in RT symposium hosted by DKFZ in 2021.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging has recently been integrated into the radiation therapy workflow, with the advantages of superior soft-tissue imaging and real-time continuous imaging. The MR in RT symposium is an international workshop that focuses on the latest development on this topic. It is dedicated to radiation oncologists, medical physicists and dosimetrists, radiation therapists, trainees, and other allied health professionals to learn the benefits of MR applications in RT, gain a deeper understanding of the challenges and strategies for implementing MR in RT, and review current advanced research designed to explore the benefits of MR in RT. We are looking forward to seeing you at UCLA in 2023!
