Welcome Message

Dear Colleagues,

We are delighted to be able to invite you, on behalf of the Association of Radiation Oncologists of India (West Bengal chapter) , to the 4th officially licensed Best of ASTRO-India, to be held at Hotel Taj Bengal, Kolkata between 29.06.2019 (Saturday) and 30.06.2019 (Sunday).

Radiation Oncology has made enormous progress in the last 2 decades and now stands poised as one of the most technically advanced and refined disciplines in medicine. Amidst this plethora of development, there is also a growing sense of the need for rationalised evidence-based therapy, which requires continuous and systematic updating of knowledge and practice.

ASTRO (American Society of Radiation Oncology) is one of the premier professional organisations in Radiation Oncology worldwide.

The Best of ASTRO India meeting is an officially licensed two-day summary of the most relevant, highly-rated abstracts from the Annual Meeting of ASTRO, that highlight recent technological advances and illustrate the importance of the clinical and non-clinical skills needed to provide patients with the full benefit of radiation oncology.

The city of Kolkata is renowned throughout the world for its rich history and culture and we hope all faculty & delegates will have ample opportunity to enjoy this mercurial city in all its moods. There is a long history in Radiation Oncology in our region, since the early days of the 20th century, which is being further bolstered by the development of new and modern institutes in both government and private sectors. The hosting institute, Naryana Superspeciality Hospital, Howrah is one of the premier comprehensive cancer centres of Eastern India.

Please join us and help to make the event a grand success.
