About Conference

kindcongress invites all participants across the world to join 20th World Congress on  Radiology and Oncology which is going to be held during  September 17-18, 2018,  Chicago, USA.

Radiology-Oncology 2018 is a trending event which brings together efficient international academic scientists, young researchers, and students making the congress a perfect platform to share experience, gain and evaluate emerging technologies in Cancer Treatment and Radiology across the globe. Initiation of cross-border co-operation between scientists and institutions will be also facilitated. The Main theme of the Conference is “Furtherance and innovations in Cancer Care and Radiology”. This conference provides three days of great opportunity to discuss on recent approaches and advancements for development of new techniques for global health. The Conference also provides CME Credits.

2017 Highlights:

300+ Participation (70 Industry: 30 Academia)

5+ Keynote Speakers

50+ Plenary Speakers

20+ Exhibitors

14 Innovative Educational Sessions

5+ Workshops

B2B Meetings


Track 1: Trends in Radiology

Radiology is imaging science technology where radio particles are used to diagnose or treat diseases inside of the body. Radiologists use a variety of energy sources including x rays, ultrasound, magnetic resonance, nuclear etc. Radiologic procedures such as CT, MRI, and PET are medically prescribed and should only be performed by appropriately trained and certified physicians under medically necessary circumstances.

  • Track 1-1Tomography
  • Track 1-2Positron emission tomography
  • Track 1-3Angiography
  • Track 1-4Helical Computed Tomography
  • Track 1-5Diagnostic Radiology
  • Track 1-6MRI Magnetic Resonance Imaging
  • Track 1-7Ultrasound

Track 2: Medical Imaging

Medical imaging is a technique which includes various techniques and procedures to create images of different parts of the body in order to diagnose or treat certain diseases in human body. It is basically visualizing tissues and organs in the body to get a molecular level approach towards disease. The most common form of medical imaging is radiography to consider breakages in bone structures.

  • Track 2-2Tomography
  • Track 2-3Radiography
  • Track 2-4Magnetic Particle Imaging
  • Track 2-5Echocardiography
  • Track 2-6MRI Magnetic Resonance Imaging

Track 3: Radiology Imaging

Radiology therapy is the use of high energy radiation to kill cancer cells DNA also their ability to grow. Linear accelerator (a machine that accelerates electrons to produce x-rays or gamma rays) also known as LINAC is used for radiology. Radiation therapy also damages the normal cells leading to side effects. Scientists studying radio sensitizers & radioprotectors, chemicals that modify the cancer cells response towards the radiation.

Radiology is a branch of treatment that uses imaging technology to diagnose and treat disease. This technique is used to detect and monitor diseases or injuries via the generation of images representing internal anatomic structures and organs of the patient’s body so that patient’s treatment and therapy can be specifically planned and implemented. Most common types of diagnostic radiology tests are

  • Track 3-1(CT) / CAT scan
  • Track 3-2PET imaging /PET scan
  • Track 3-3Ultrasound
  • Track 3-4Mammography
  • Track 3-5 Endoscopy
  • Track 3-6 X ray
  • Track 3-7 IODINE-123

Track 4: Radiopharmaceuticals

Radiopharmaceuticals or medical radio compounds are a group of pharmaceutical drugs which have radioactivity, intended for diagnosis, therapeutically purposes. Radioisotopes emitting penetrating gamma rays are used for imaging where the radiation has to escape the body before being detected by a specific device (PET cameras/SPECT).Common isotopes for imaging are 99mTc,I 131,TI201,ln 111 etc.

  • Track 4-3FLUORINE-18
  • Track 4-4INDIUM-111
