66th Annual Scientific Meeting of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Radiologists
Adelaide Convention Centre #ADELAIDE, AUSTRALIA
On behalf of the 2015 Organising Committee we invite you to be part of The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Radiologists (RANZCR) 66th Annual Scientific Meeting to be held 29 October – 1 November 2015 at the newly redeveloped Adelaide Convention Centre in Adelaide, South Australia.
The integrated care theme was conceptualised due to the changing role of the radiologist and radiation oncologist in the clinical setting. The traditional view of the radiologist as a specialist who adds value to the health care system solely by generating and interpreting diagnostic images is no longer accurate. The radiologists’ roles have evolved to include economic gate keeping, political advocacy, public health delivery, patient safety, quality of care improvement and information technology.
Likewise the role of the radiation oncologist requires an ever expanding range of skills in order to provide patients with optimal multidisciplinarycare. The responsible use of new technologies, integration of increasingly complex diagnostic information and the emergence of personalised care continue to challenge radiation oncology practice. Growing reliance on image-guided radiation therapy techniques will continue to solidify the relationship between the disciplines of radiology and radiation oncology.
It is with this mindset that the RANZCR ASM 2015 Organising Committee has based its scientific program. The plenary sessions will consist of a panel incorporating the radiologists, radiation oncologists and other relevant specialists including surgeons to highlight the integral role of our fields in the diagnostic pathway and management algorithm of patients. The scientific program will be enticing for delegates due to the high profile keynote speakers who will be presenting at the meeting.

Adelaide is dynamic and inspiring, cultured and warm. Stylish, yet casual; artistic, but very down-to-earth. It’s large enough to be cosmopolitan yet compact enough to avoid big-city congestion, inconvenience – and cost. Renowned across Australia as being the festival city, Adelaide’s appreciation of the arts goes hand in hand with a penchant for good food and fine wine.
Situated between the beautiful Adelaide Hills and the long white beaches of the Gulf of St. Vincent.
Adelaide is a picturesque city with a population of approximately 1.2 million. With the city being settled in 1836, the city still retains much of its simple peace and tranquility, with the convenience and energy of a modern city.
Adelaide is best known for its biennial Arts Festival, its many churches and graceful stone buildings and its being within an hour’s drive of some of Australia’s most famous and beautiful wine producing regions including the Barossa Valley. Other sights which have made the region famous over the years include the beautiful Kangaroo Island and the scenic Flinders Ranges.
Adelaide and South Australia in general pride themselves on offering a lower-key, but more relaxing and pleasant experience to what can be offered by the larger Australian cities. This is supported by fabulous food and wine, a temperate Mediterranean climate, a vibrant arts scene and exciting program of major events that make the ideal location for mixing business with pleasure.
The Adelaide Convention Centre is one of the world’s premier conference centres and will have just undergone a massive $350million expansion in the for the 2015 ASM.
The striking design is inspired by the South Australian landscape and was put forward by Adelaide-based international architectural firm Woods Bagot in association with London-based international architect and Vx3 founder Larry Oltmanns.
The Riverbank Precinct is rapidly evolving to create a new hub for Adelaide which incorporates new research, health and medical centres, educational institutions, sport, entertainment, convention and event facilities.
The project is also a crucial part of the State Government’s vision for a revitalised Riverbank Entertainment Precinct, complementing other substantial infrastructure investment such as Adelaide Oval, and the new Footbridge over the River Torrens and as well as the new Royal Adelaide Hospital.
The RANZCR 2015 ASM invites the submission of abstracts on original work for consideration for a Scientific Paper, Educational Paper, Scientific Exhibit or Educational Exhibit in the radiology and radiation oncology programs.
