WELCOME MESSAGE

We take a great pride in welcoming all the attendees to the 1st officially-licensed best of Astro Saudi Arabia, to be held at Le Meridian, Al-Khobar on April 13, 2019. The Saudi Assembly of Radiation Oncology “SARO” is proud to organize this meeting in collaboration with the Saudi Oncology Society and King Fahad Specialist Hospital in Dammam. As radiation oncology is one of the specialties that are strongly connected to technology, it has had enormous progress in the last 2 decades. Today it stands as one of the most technically advanced disciplines. ASTRO (American Society of Radiation Oncology) is one of the most distinguished international professional organizations. Their annual meeting highlights both the most recent technological advances and clinical recommendations to enable the best patient care. Best of ASTRO (BOA) is an officially-licensed summary of the most significant, highly rated topics from the annual meeting. It is an efficient, concise way to get the best practice-changing information from the ASTRO annual meeting. It’s an honor to host it for the first time in Saudi Arabia that will allow the professionals who were unable to attend the ASTRO meeting, the opportunity to discuss the latest information with colleagues and to enjoy the presentations in the original format.
