It gives us immense pleasure to inform you that the 27th national and ninth international conference of the Association of Radiation Therapy Technologists of India (ARTTI), ARTTICON 2023, was held from 14 to 15 October 2023 at the Dr Nitu Mandke Convention Centre, Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital & Medical Research Institute (KDAH), Mumbai.

The ARTTI was formed in 1996 to provide a unique platform for all radiation therapy professionals in India. Its main aim was to develop academic activities for radiation therapists (RTTs) and to enable them to update themselves on the latest technological developments in radiation oncology. The ARTTI has grown and earned recognition and honours from the radiation oncology fraternity through its continuous academic engagement, appraisal and development of RTTs in India. It has allied with RTTs worldwide to participate internationally in academic activities and has collaborated with ESTRO to share experiences across the field of radiation oncology. ARTTI has aided many RTTs in recognising their professional identity. A sign of its growth is that this year’s congress was endorsed by ESTRO for the first time.
