Dear Valued Colleagues,
This year, our congress, which we have decided to hold every year with the aim of presenting our scientific studies, will be held for the second time with the slogan 'A COMBINATION OF DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT' in cooperation with our sister association, the Association of Radiotherapy Technicians. I am pleased to invite you to the 15th TMRT-Der International Radiotechnology Congress and Training Seminars, which we will hold in Maritim Pine Beach Otel Belek, Antalya between 12 and 15 April.
Congresses are the platforms which provide us with the opportunity to follow closely the scientific and technological innovations, to exchange knowledge and to establish a social integration. This year, we will get together again under this platform.
The foundations of Turkish Medical Radiotechnology Association were laid in 1992 in the Radiology Seminar that was held in Antalya; it was founded under the name Medical Radiology Technicians on 27 December 1995 in İzmir on the 100th anniversary of the discovery of X-ray. In 1998, the word "Turkish" was added to the name of our association with the permission granted by the Republic of Turkey Ministry of Internal Affairs and we became the Turkish Medical Radiotechnology Association covering all the colleagues working with Ionizing Radiation from the fields of Radiology, Radiotherapy and Nuclear Medicine. Now our association is the largest one in its field and provides free-of-charge trainings to almost 1500 people per year.With its mission to protect our health, look after our personal rights, ensure that our education level is leveraged to the bachelor's level and that our professional job description is established and to identify the competencies of our profession, our Association expresses the necessity of determining the wage policy according to the workload and occupational risk on every platform and conducts studies to this end. We are also working to prevent loss of personal rights.
We are in cooperation with the Turkish Radiology Association and Turkish Magnetic Resonance Association on national level and carry out common studies.
As every year, the Honorary President of our Congress will be from the Turkish Radiology Association this year as well, and Prof. Dr. Tuncay HAZIROLAN will be filling this position. I would like to take this opportunity to thank him and the whole Management Board for their valuable support.
I am pleased to invite you to the 15th TMRT-Der International Radiotechnology Congress and Training Seminars, which we will hold in Maritim Pine Beach Belek Otel, Antalya between 12 and 15 April 2020, to gather together, to get informed about the most recent developments and to protect your profession.
Chairman of the Turkish Medical Radiotechnology Association - Chairman of the Congress
Dear Valued Colleagues,
We have decided to hold our congress, which we organize with the aim of presenting our scientific studies, getting informed about the developing technologies, adjusting ourselves with these technologies, establishing a sound network and working in consistency with our colleagues, finding common solutions for the shared problems and making ourselves heard in a powerful way, on a yearly basis. This year, our congress will be held for the second time with the slogan 'A COMBINATION OF DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT' in cooperation with our sister association, the Association of Radiotherapy Technicians. I am pleased to invite you to the 15th TMRT-Der International Radiotechnology Congress and Training Seminars, which we will hold in Maritim Pine Beach Otel Belek, Antalya between 12 and 15 April.
In last year's 14th TMRT-Der International Radiotechnology Congress and Training Seminars which was held in Papillon Zeugma Otel, Antalya between 21 and 24 April 2019, we received over 60 scientific study applications and published many essays screened by the Scientific Board of our Congress on a special issue of Turkish Clinics Journal of Radiology (https://www.tmrtder.org.tr/turkiye-klinikleri-ozel-sayisi-cikti.htm). Associations should stand out with their scientific studies; in this sense, we are PROUD to have published our Journal which covered verbal presentations special to the TMRT-Der Family for 4 times.
Last year we went through a radical transformation in our congress and paved the way for the publication of scientific works. The editorial board will be chaired by Assoc. Prof. Dr. Özüm TUNÇYÜREK and Assoc. Prof. Dr. Hüseyin Ozan TEKİN.The works evaluated by the Scientific Board of our Congress will be published in important journals.
TMRT-Der is a member of International Society of Radiographers & Radiological Technologists (ISRRT) and European Federation of Radiographer Societies (EFRS), and is the ONLY TURKISH ASSOCIATION which has seized the chance to be represented in the international field, adopt the same quantitative standards in our profession through consulting with all the world countries in this platform and have its vision in the light of global developments. In this sense, it is the authorized association for opening the doors of international opportunities to our colleagues.
We are proud to be the largest association in Turkey among the participants of the last year's congress with 467 participants and 19 stands, and this year, we would like to demonstrate the impact of our cooperation with many international associations through special sessions.
