We are pleased to announce registration for the second Middle East Society for Therapeutic Radiation Oncology (MESTRO) annual conference (MESTRO 2023). Attendees are welcome in person and/or virtually. The 2022 first MESTRO conference was a great success with an attendance of over 900 professionals (virtual and physical) from the Middle East and the region. We received an abundance of requests for another conference in 2023.
