At Isoray, we recognize the value of industry conferences, specifically when it comes to continuing your education, staying up-to-date with the latest research, and networking with industry colleagues. Our team is looking forward to once again having the opportunity to join the radiation oncologist community at the ASTRO Annual Meeting to discuss the most recent developments in cancer treatment.
Isoray was proud to be a part of yet another annual meeting for the American Brachytherapy Society (ABS) in Miami and, as we’ve had some time to process all of the stimulating conversations and unique opportunities that ABS always provides, we’d like to highlight some of our favorite moments and discussions from this year’s event.
