Australian Institute of Radiography (AIR) has changed name to Australian Society of Medical Imaging and Radiation Therapy (ASMIRT).
On Thursday 19th of May the Australian Institute of Radiography (AIR) announced its formally approved name change to the Australian Society of Medical Imaging and Radiation Therapy (ASMIRT). The change was spurred by a need to adopt a name that reflects the full diversity of our treatment and imaging professionals including Radiation Therapy; Nuclear Medicine; and the full gamut within Medical Imaging - including non-ionising modalities such as Ultrasound and MRI.
The full adoption of the new name will be an incremental process that will involve a considerable number of areas – website, email, stationery, branding, logos and many other elements. The transition will be gradual and further announcements will follow over the coming weeks and months.ServicesAccreditationTraining

AIR member registration rates are not transferable to non-AIR members.
